Many of us now feel far more free to share our internal thoughts and opinions. In a society in which they were unwelcome, they are now embraced. Maybe not widely embraced, but embraced none the less, by like minded people.
Our public school systems are a fantastic resource. My question today is; Why don’t our schools teach our children how to learn? Our system is based on teaching children what to know, not how to figure it out. Teachers try, but are limited in what and how they are allowed to teach. So many restrictions.
With parents having to work so much more, there is far less time for us to teach our children the important things like work ethic and a strong moral character.
Then comes the internet to just blast it’s brutal visage upon us all. So few restrictions.
The moral of this who story is that maybe it’s time we look in to shifting how we teach our future. How this is done I don’t rightly know. Some nice ideas I have are;
Pay teachers more. I would hope we love our teachers enough to pay them so they won’t have to get 2nd jobs. Would they then have more time to dedicate to our children’s education? Would more people be inspired to be teachers, to help guide our progeny. We could then have more classes such as work ethic, morality, and even tax preparation, home upkeep, etc.
Maybe it’s time to put far more into education for everyone, instead of letting the internet spray it’s truth in our faces.
How to pay for it? A special tax levied on insurance companies, bankers, politicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies. As well as the rest of the corporations and special interest groups that got us into this broken system to begin with. Should have bailed out the people, not the banks.
