Subterranean Failures of Education in Flourishing Individuals: From the Perspectives of Paradigm and the Simulation Theory*
Hamit Ozen, PhD

Abstract
Even though transformations have been made in Turkey, schools have turned into places where partners are unhappy. Recently, education has moved into a new dimension called the system of objects in consumer society. The consumer society has become devoted to the system of objects, as people are not consuming for need but for want. Model schools and education are couched not within humanitarian paradigms but as promoters of this system of objects, thereby acting to deceive humanity. In this research, simulation theory is used to develop an ontological view of school and educational systems as the simulacra for a radical humanist paradigm. In conclusion, Education systems today tend to anonymize the individual within the nation, enabling the capitalist system to become the reality, thus allowing those in power to shepherd the herd easily.
