Parents and educators are beginning to awaken to the understanding that our current system of education is not meant to create enlightened individuals who work together to build a more humane and caring society but to enslave them to a future of ignorance and indentured servitude.
The concentration now must be on changing the entire system of education, from the Federal level to the Local Education Agencies.
The Federal government should amend the Constitution of the United States to read, “Every child in America is entitled to receive an excellent education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing their gifts and talents towards becoming a knowledgeable and engaged citizen of these United States”, holding states accountable for managing their LEA’s, making sure they have the necessary funding to insure their students receive an excellent education.
Each State Constitution should guarantee the children in their charge the same, while making sure their LEA’s have the resources necessary to provide every student with a child centered, developmentally appropriate, arts based, experiential education that includes every aspect of learning throughout the learning experience.
Learning does not happen in silos but in communities. Computers cannot hold conversations, share ideas, or appreciate the gifts and talents of others while sharing their gifts and talents with others.
Now that we are waking up to what is and has been happening in education it is time for the citizens of this country to stand up for the future, their children’s future and the future of America.
Constitutionality means accountability. It means that the billions of education dollars collected in taxes each year will actually serve the educational needs of children. It means that states can no longer hide behind the language of the federal entitlements to steer education funding towards corporate profits.
When we concentrate on educating the child, we will begin to build a more intelligent, independent, critically thinking, caring, and successful society that will rise and shine as the beacon of pride and hope it once was for the rest of the world.
Our children deserve a better world.
