“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
The preamble to the Constitution of the United States is the foundation upon which the governance and laws of our country are based.
Those we elect into office are to work towards bringing about those ideals outlined in its statement. More importantly however, the people are responsible for making sure that our government maintains the promise of a more perfect union, justice, domestic tranquility, defense, the general welfare of its people, and the blessings of liberty for everyone and future generations.
The struggle in education today is how best to standardize the system of education so that it serves the needs of colleges and corporations not children and ultimately our society.
In America everyone is supposed to have access to a more perfect union yet everyone knows that there is dual system of education that differs greatly between those who can afford a better education and those who are remanded to the free and public system of education designed to prepare children to become comfortable with a middle class existence in society.
Everyone knows that an excellent education is the path to personal success and everyone knows what an excellent education looks like. It is child centered, experiential, developmentally appropriate, and concentrates on building a better society through engagement in civic responsibility.
It is incumbent upon us as Americans to provide all of our children with an excellent education so that we can realize an America that lives up to its Constitutional promises.
The Constitution and its Preamble speaks of human rights, not the wants and desires of colleges and corporations.
The struggle in education today should be about how to provide all children with an excellent education in order to secure the blessings of liberty for all Americans.
