In this life, you will learn whether you want to or not. Every day we sit in the classroom of life. We are constantly in evolution and are always presented with lessons. Some we absorb others we ignore.
Today’s daily prompt is: educate. Here are a few of my thoughts inspired by the word of the day.
E- Everyone deserves the right to a proper education. This applies to formal education and also upbringing. I believe everyone should have a happy home life. In a perfect world, this would be the case.
D- Do your own research. Critical thinking is a must. Open your mind to any and all possibilities. Do not just accept what you are taught.
U- Never underestimate someone’s potential for learning. We all learn differently. Having ”book sense” is not the only prerequisite for a successful life.
C- Curriculum. Can we adjust what is taught in schools to be applicable to real life? How about how to boost your self-esteem courses. Practical tips for saving. Courses that actually teach skills on how to cope with the everyday hurdles of life. I think meditation and mindfulness can be taught from a young age so we can create a society or more peaceful well – rounded individuals.
A- All students are valuable. We all have a unique contribution to make to this world. Let us celebrate what we are good at and try not to force people into moulds of what we think is acceptable.
T- Teachers. There is not enough praise for the contributions of good teachers. Their dedication is admirable. They help nurture and shape the minds and lives of our youth. We as parents must also be diligent teachers and set a good example and teach our children to respect everyone.
Education empowers. Education not only expands our minds but provides us with the knowledge and self-confidence to stand up for ourselves and our rights. Education unlocks the key to hidden potential, ignites our creative powers and enables us to earn.
