Step Up, Speak Out: Kids are Endangered
A dedicated mother/grandmother just spoke to me today about her concerns for her grandchildren and the educational system’s changes occurring today. She informed me that cursive had been dropped from the curriculum, being told that with computers being the future, cursive was not a necessity. Furthermore, she was told that some basics are not being taught with spelling because computers have ‘spell-check.’
Not all schools may have this kind of change due to budgets and other priorities in a squashed educational system being depleted by the LACK monster that is fueled by the money mongrels far above peon status. But the deficits for our country’s children are becoming prominent in every direction.
What does this mean long term? The woman I mention here said it appears to her that we are headed for creating a huge number of peon workers. It certainly would appear that way.
It reminds me of the Inca kings not allowing the worker peasants to have the grain, quinoa, because it is considered a brain food. They didn’t want the peasants getting too smart or too strong.
What are we going to do about it? Nothing? Just talk? Peon power is actually the most empowering form of strength when there is collaboration and a vision. What do YOU see for the future for your children and grandchidren? What do you WANT for them?
If you believe the politicians that children are a priority in this country, you are making a big mistake. Look around and see for yourself instead of listening to a polished speaker in an expensive suit.
So something. Start by talking. Meeting. Writing. Share creative ideas. Ask children to be a part of this collective voice. Do something. Do something. Do something. Use your will. Use your creative intelligence. Give up and you give your children and grandchildren to the vision of those who don’t care about them. Is that what you want?
