Education….A Redefinition

Education: Helping our children develop better so that they can be relatively happy individuals early on, while helping them identify career goals, inclinations, and abilities separate from what their parents may want or think later on.

I think it’s time that we do a much better job with our children than just “test” them and their teachers.  Whatever happened to raising them to be adults who can manage, adjust to, and accept the world around them, and then think creatively about how to work with it in ways that work?  Whatever happened to instilling in them the value of learning as opposed to rote memorization? How is it that we get politics and personal preferences ahead of what matters most: our childrens’ well being, mental and physical health, and quality of life?

Just a couple of thoughts.

Enjoy!
