According to a recent poll, there are at least twenty genius school ideas that you wish you had at school. There are ideas for anything and everything from an economics and entrepreneurship program to a science in business program, and the list goes on.
If you really want to become educated, these are your go-to people. These are the people that, if they were given a blank slate to put together a curriculum, they would come up with some pretty cool ideas. Let’s look at a few of these twenty ideas and see how we can take them forward into a fully equipped education facility.
The conventional wisdom is that children learn best in a traditional classroom setting. This is true for the best of us. However, our society is moving away from conventional classrooms and towards self-contained learning settings that allow for independent and continuous learning to occur. These places are becoming increasingly common, which is why we need to start thinking creatively about the best way to deliver education, and not just what the systems are today.
Science in business programs that are geared towards business, and how to run businesses, are coming into their own. They’ve always had some credibility, but have now made good on all the talk that they would like to provide a real alternative to conventional schools. It’s unfortunate that conventional schools do not support and endorse these kinds of programs, but they should, because this is a huge part of the education industry that is still missing something.
Education is fundamentally a mind-set and a lifestyle. It’s a lifestyle that gets a person prepared for the real world that is around us all the time. It’s how we get prepared to make and create things, and it’s how we get ready for a fulfilled life.
As in any industry, we become what we surround ourselves with. There is something to be said for what Peter Drucker called “The Flourishing Effect,” and we should learn from him.
If a person is surrounded by thinkers, and supports thinkers, they are encouraged to be better thinkers, and to come up with more ideas. This is the way we grow as individuals, and when we provide for each other with the proper resources, the results will be seen in our community.
All these ideas are all interrelated and provide the support necessary for individual resource development work. In fact, all of these ideas are interrelated and can be easily adapted to various settings. Is your community missing a “fully equipped education facility?”
Education in the United States is what we call a service. It’s the kind of service that are needed but not supplied by our school system, and it’s only getting worse.
Do your community members deserve to be educated? Are you ready to change that?
You can imagine what kind of education students in low-income communities will need to accomplish their full potential. They need to be read, but they also need to learn to think, they need to be provided with constructive self-esteem, and they need to be given an environment that stimulates their imagination.
Education is not something that can be addressed by placing books into children’s hands. Education is not something that can be addressed by filling classrooms with computers and taking all the students out of their daily lives. Education is something that a person needs to learn on their own, and that’s where the twenty “genius school ideas” comes in.
