Socrates was truly a wise man! He must have seen the future. He spoke of a time that seems to be now. Adults are in a dilema. We don’t know exactly what to teach but we know that we just have to teach. That’s the crossroads I see our curriculums leading us to. Time has come to treat each unique gift in each unique child with it’s own unique touch. The big question may be how, but when there is a will, there is a way. I just love this post!
I find it counterintuitive that mankind subjects young children to a framework or education system based on the premise that the adults know what they should be teaching these clean slates. If the world was progressing forward in an ever brighter horizon, I understand the premise, but it appears to me that the opposite is true. Therefore, we would be better off creating a framework to educate our young that assumes the adults know nothing and are ignorant. Socrates is the type of educator I have in mind for our precious young sparks of fire.
