Institutionalized Humanity

Institution: an established organization: a place where an organization takes care of people for a usually long period of time: a custom, practice, or law that is accepted and used by many people.

An educational institution is a place where people of different ages gain an education, including preschools, childcare, elementary schools, and universities.

Institutionalized: to cause (a custom, practice, law, etc.) to become accepted and used by many people: to establish (something) as an institution:

Our current educational institution has become an organization that takes care of people and the practice that has become acceptable and used by many is discriminatory and segregationist for people of different ages including preschools, childcare, elementary schools, and universities.

Our current system of education has institutionalized the beliefs of the American public into thinking that we must classify and strengthen the disabilities of our children without regard to their gifts and talents.

Our institutionalized thinking has us believing that the Arts should be no more than “push-in” services that can be delivered on a cart in twenty minutes, twice a week and dispensed with during seasons of budget crises.

The American citizen has accepted the practice of allowing their elected leaders to pass education legislation that is contrary to relevant research concerning childhood education and they have accepted the established language of education that disparages all cultures and the value they add to the fabric of America.

When we become committed to changing the institution of education so that it becomes a place where people of different ages gain an education, we will break the institutionalized attitude of American citizens and begin to think freely.

When we provide ALL children in America with a developmentally appropriate, arts based, experiential education that concentrates on discovering, developing, and directing their gifts and talents towards becoming knowledgeable, concerned, actively engaged citizens who take seriously their civic responsibilities and are proud to pledge their allegiance to the United States of America, we will lead the world in a new direction, the direction of love and respect for self and others.
