Education

If education is the transfer of the lived experiences and locally transmitted knowledge to new generations by the society, then the first teacher of the people is the nature. Nature created itself in the evolutionary development of the universe in millions of years. A person who has developed himself/herself during this process has drawn a route in the adventure of being human by knowing nature, learning its language, listening to its warnings, lessons and feeling all of them. Women have been the first learners of nature and the first teachers of society. They educated themselves, men and children. Women never forgot their role as being the learners of nature and the teaching mother of society on the long and challenging path of this social adventure. As they did not deny the source of their knowledge, ways of their learning, the sanctity of teaching, women always knew well for whom, what, how and when to teach.

The goal of Jineolojî is to make the concept of “perwerde” (Kurdish word for education which is related to expressions with the meanings ‘teaching to fly’ and ‘loving’) vital. It expresses nature and the essence of the act of education, and to live according to the meaning of this concept. In other words, the meaning of “perwerde” is to: Protect especially children and young people from the monstrous educational system of capitalist modernity, educate them with love, respect and raise them with the philosophy of freedom and social values. Moreover, it is to enable children and all of society to take responsibility for creating and managing their lives.

As being a precondition of establishing an ethical-political society, Jineolojî will develop any kind of theoretical academic effort to support the constitution of social education institutions. Jineolojî has to deal with educational activities in depth in order to create its own fields of activism and associates. The field of education has become a vital need in every area of social life. It is related to the question of existence – non-existence, and it needs to be improved with the perspective of Jineolojî. As the first learners of nature, women can carry into effect the scientific-theoretical accumulation of Democratic Modernity only with an extremely comprehensive education system in the fields of economy, ecology, demography, politics, ethics-aesthetics, health, history and other areas that may be needed in the future. If women together with the society manage to establish an alternative education system, they will also have to save the brains that already have been slaughtered by the capitalist system and achieve the transmission of useful knowledge and a new understanding. In order to create this change and transformation, Jineolojî needs to develop a particular educational understanding and style, which will be in connection with the other particular fields of Jineolojî.

While developing an alternative education system, Jineolojî uses historical experiences according to the nature of society and its unique conditions and needs.
