We must teach our children how to live in harmony with nature, the planet, and we can when we make compulsory education structured as a way of life, not a job. Let’s have children 4-10 learning through growing food, teens 11-16 learning how to flex their muscles using sustainable skills, and young adults getting their ya-yas out by building a light rail system over all the freeways in the country. We need a barter system for public education!
With our economy in shutdown from this pandemic, we have a unique opportunity to recreate what could be. All we need is to boldly embrace innovation, a different way of seeing things.
What if public education were structured along a barter system rather than a business factory system? What if public education were configured more as a way of life rather than as workers in factories? Can you wrap your head around this?
