The future depends on education but not indoctrination
schools are important not as a building but their content
knowledge is power and lack of knowledge creates fear
education should foster respect for daring to seek knowledge
and dared respected that others seeking knowledge too.
“It’s hard to make predictions, especially about the future”
(Robert Storm Petersen)
“Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future“.
“Life must be lived forwards, but often only can be understood backwards”
The teachers’ role isn’t to indoctrinate their own perceptions, or the systems view
but to cultivate the ability of chrildren to be themselves in a community and the ability to accommodate others’ right to be different within the community framework..
Education is no ready-made solutions,
but learning to use tools to create solutions.
None are so clever that they can’t learn more.
The top photo
one from the outside looked quite ordinary school,
there was the framework for my learning a few years in the 1970s
those of the teachers I met were very inspiring.
The bottom photo
the school gym hall, not flashy in itself
but inspiring teachers did that many were motivated for sports.
How exciting future will be, depend on the ability and the understanding
to give everyone the opportunity for education and learning.
