"Education is one of the major obstacles to the freedom of intelligence and thought." Bertrand A. Russell (1872-1970) is an English philosopher, mathematician and writer.
I want to take the subject of education. Since you will certainly become familiar with the columns, this will not be a traditional viewpoint, but more pragmatic view.
I have drawn attention to the fact that a significant part of the education we know – the formal school and, for example – did very little to actually teach someone the word defined by the dictionary, that is, teaching or enlightening. How many people do we know about people who are "highly trained" and do not have the first tips on managing people. And they did not apply the training that they paid tons of money. Instead, trophies, titles or trinkets thrive to show their merit. "Education is one of the few things a person is willing to pay for and does not get." William Lowe Bryan
Education, if not directed at our own predetermined results, is a waste of time. Our school systems have become the bastions of political war and emotional goodness, which is between adults. We forgot that our children are paying the price in the epicenter of the fight, especially in the minority community. We do not want children to feel nervous if they are of poor quality, lose the game, or have to experiment with the character building point on any difficult test, whether mental, mental, physical or moral.
Education takes place when we know the right and wrong way to spell, add, talk, throw balls, talk to our peers and respect our elders. All these invaluable lessons will be lost in a day, with the current attempt of career politicians to educate our children. The fund is with the parents – the parents concerned, caring parents, their parents who are not afraid to look at the circumstances and call the emperor's clothes for what they are.
So what's the answer to Jason? Every time we hear complaints … we know the system does not work … what to do?
The answer is to know the purpose of teaching children. They are currently serving to teach our children how to get work and have good soldiers throwing someone else. The climate has changed. How many of you are reading this at school, or in the same profession as you were five years ago?
In our time, new types of teaching are needed, based on the result and focus on leadership – if not the leader of others, at least our own leader. Leadership does not mean waiting for a government to take care of you. Driving is not home until you are 30 years old. Driving is not blamed by others. Driving can not make the most of the return. Driving is not how many beers can drink or how to avoid the growth pressure through modern pharmacology (Xanax, Prozac, etc.).
Driving deeply looks at you and asks the question: "What am I here?" The answer that always comes back when asked seriously is woman, service, and love. How can we evolve when we release rules that they are constantly changing or not applicable How can we grow when we use drugs and alcohol-altering moods to get pain when we experience psychological or physical pain The answer is simple: we do not know The most important thing is to try to spare our children and the thing we are constantly trying to avoid is the only thing that predicts that individuals, families, nations, and the world are moving ahead. The greatest leaders of modern and historical times have always been those who are struggling with enormous chances and overcoming them. for a moment if Martin Luther King left the Civil Rights M with the excuse of "forgetting this shit, let someone else deal with it," or Mother Theresa decided that the poor and the sick should only die, take over, or turn Nelson Mandela into abbey.
Imagine that you and I are related to our communities, not for my praise, but for the common good. Imagine seeing you in the mirror today and shouting, "Enough!" I ended up being a victim who bickers, bitches, and complains. I officially lead and do not follow. Today I will believe in her good power not only to admit, but to become. Those who read this column and are inspired to do something today are taking action. Research charitable organizations, causes and organizations in which you believe; search for groups that believe as you are. Take huge steps to your dreams. Everyone needs all of us who believe in this magazine to voice and participate in this world in actions that show positive differences. Help help by talking to your neighbors by subscribing to yourself, sending your stories of challenges and decisions. Do something today and see how the transformation takes place in your own life! Now I leave a mantra to remember when he was tempted to return to previous beliefs and customs: LEAD, SERVE, GROW and LOVE
