Traditional education is great for stimulating the mind, but often disregards a child’s emotional wellbeing and may not be the best preparation for a fast-changing world. But alternative schooling methods don’t always make for well-rounded and truly happy individuals either. In this day and age, what is truly important in a child’s development? Which methods serve to reveal the child’s ultimate purpose in life, in addition to providing the tools they’ll need?
Conventional schools change too!
Schools far and wide are adopting new models and programs that stimulate a child’s inner growth and bring wellbeing. How best to deal with challenging social issues in middle school and high school? How are collaborative models replacing old competition-based paradigms? Can emotional intelligence be taught systematically? We are all students in this bold new endeavor.
Turning it off
The mind is a powerful tool that needs to be forged and ever-expanded, but no one ever teaches us to turn it off. When the tool takes over and rules our lives, we are at mercy of its whims and desires. If schools also taught us to silence our minds – perhaps just for a minute – they’d be teaching true magic. But are there any Dumbledore’s out there?
