In the Moyers & Company article, Why the First Issue Is Money in Politics, Constitutional scholar and activist Lawrence Lessig, states, “. . . We will see no progress until the wealthy entities that benefit can no longer buy up politicians to prevent the status quo from changing.”
Until the wealthy entities that benefit from the mis-education of America’s children can no longer buy up politicians to prevent the status quo from changing, our children will not be recognized for the gifted and talented human beings they were created to be.
There has been a great deal of attention being given “humane” education. The very concept of education is humane when it is concentrated on the child. To fight to end the policies and procedures of a system designed to dehumanize our children will not change the system but merely prolong it.
Changing the language of the Federal, State, and Local departments of education so that it focuses on discovering, developing, and directing the gifts and talents of all children in America is the only way to effectively and efficiently bring about educational success.
When the Federal government Constitutionally guarantees the right of every child in America to receive an excellent education, it can then insure that every State fulfills its obligation to provide every child in America with that excellent education according to the educational needs of the Local Education Agencies in their charge.
Towards that goal, every Local Education Agency should receive, from their State, the resources necessary to provide every child in the LEA with an excellent education according to their individual gifts and talents.
Every child in America deserves a curriculum that is child centered, developmentally appropriate, founded in the Arts, and experiential.
Every child should have the privilege of being educated in their neighborhood school by dedicated, passionate teachers, in safe school communities that promote pride and respect for self and others.
Every child in America should receive the education every wealthy child in America receives.
Provide all children with an excellent education and America’s future leaders will govern with integrity.
