Night Class Model Question Paper IBPS Clerk Exam 2015 : English Quiz 35

Direction (Q.No. 1 - 5) : Read the passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.

It is an old saying that knowledge is power. Education is an instrument which imparts knowledge and, therefore, indirectly controls power. Therefore, ever since the dawn of civilization, persons in power have always tried to supervise or control education. It has been the handmaid of the ruling class. During the Christian Era, the ecclesiastics controlled the institution of education and diffused among the people the gospels of the Bible and religious teachings.

These gospels and teachings were nothing but a philosophy for the maintenance of the existing society. It taught the poor man to be meek and to earn his bread with the sweat of his brow, while the priests and the landlords lived in luxury, fought duels for the slightest offence. During the Renaissance, education passed from the clutches of the priests into the hands of the princes. In other words, it became more secular. It was also due to the growth of the nation and powerful monarchs who united the country under their rule. Thus, under the control of the monarch, education began to devise and preach the infallibility of its master, the monarch or the king. It also invented and supported fantastic theories like the 'Divine Right Theory' and that the king can do no wrong. With the advent of the Industrial Revolution, education took a different turn and had to please the new masters. It, now, no longer remained the privilege of the baron class but was still confined to the few elite. The philosophy which was in vogue during this period was that of laissez faire restricting the function of the State to a mere keeping of law and order. While, on the other hand, in practice the law of the jungle prevailed in the form of free competition and survival of the fittest.
