“His first radio interview with a child was in 1943 with his son Jack, then 5. Asked about his first day at school, Jack said he wasn’t going back. “I said, why not? He says, Well, I can’t read and I can’t write and they won’t let me talk.” – Art Linkletter
Our future depends on these young people.
What we teach them and the legacy that we leave will be their inheritance.
In our collective hands lies a multi-million dollar asset intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically and of course financially commonly known as your sons, daughters, grandchildren, children, students and every other name that we may attach to these inheritors.
Teach these young people to become critical thinkers and you immediately unleash the most creative unstoppable force in the universe.
The offspring of critical thinking creates inclusion, diversity, acceptance, understanding, tolerance, and every other word that fits this category.
Human beings are experts at gathering information.
We did this activity for approximately 12-16 years on the average.
We learned to read, remember, and recite.
Most of the required courses in order to prepare for the SAT exam are included in the curriculum of most school districts.
Unfortunately, they did not include the most important course.
This course would have required us to learn how to think critically and as a result utilize the intellectual faculties of the human mind, i.e. will, imagination, memory, perception, intuition, and reason.
To date, approximately 3% of the planet and growing utilize the latter in their daily life experience.
Unfortunately, we were not taught these essential life building skills in order to create a more abundant life in all areas that promotes the offspring mentioned above.
Why is this?
Possibly, the curriculum was more important than our personal growth.
I do not want to appear to be critical of the educational system however as a former educator I now understand that harnessing the power of your glorious mind and understanding the latter reaps huge rewards intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, physically and financially.
