About

I am an educator wondering about the future of our educational system.  Which way is it headed?  How important is it to our society?  How do we go about successfully educating our youth given today’s society?  What can I do to help?!

    This is a great article! Thank you for writing about this topic. So often in education worldwide we don’t give students what they need, but rather what we are expected to give them. That is something to ponder even in the USA.

    Dear Rosa,

    I think this is also the case in the UK and probably many other advanced countries. When we create education systems that push hundreds of thousands of kids into the same jobs, you only create frustration and disappointment. I really believe a lot of the problem with suicides in the west (especially the rise of suicides of young people) has as much to do with the ‘normal’ paths we set people on as anything else on our society. Variety is the spice of life and this should apply the most to education. Thank you for reading.
