I never meant.. fix the public school system.  I meant, literally- how we educate our children.  I don’t know that there is any fixing the good ship titanic of education.  It is far too entrenched, and as noted, painting a house whose foundation is rotted and sinking.  No one is looking at the basement/ foundation- and praising the pretty new colours on the walls.

 

My reason for writing this series– is to create the dialogue, about the importance of including the creative/ non-linear, human-spiritual–ecological aspects and connections.  Without that.. the rest of educational reform is just window dressing and fresh paint.  Here’s a question that hit me this morning:  if school is soooo great and wonderful and the system has created such an amazing learning environment… why aren’t kids thrilled to be there, happy, healthy, and fully engaged- even over-coming their external life circumstances in the drive and hunger to learn and be part of it?

Historically, Education was a privilege.  It was also elective.  Many   parents on farms, gave their children basic instruction on reading and   writing, and arithmetic.

At what point, did education shift from a right, to an enforced obligation? who came up with that brilliant idea?

Should education be required?  What if it wasn’t?

This is where I am posting excerpts from my books and writings. Some are complete- often, things I am currently working on, in progress:) Spiritual, metaphysical, horse-related... wherever the keyboard goes whither with or without my consent;)
