The Education Standard: America’s New Civil Right is Education

Posted by Terri McCormick On May - 29 - 2009

“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and injustice.

– Senator Robert F. Kennedy

A 21st Century Education requires that all students learn ‘how to learn’ in order to help create new professions needed that have not yet been created…  New languages, cultures and protocols are necessary tools needed to compete as global citizens in world markets and global industries.

The most successful methods and curriculum will be viewed in the Education Standard with the presumption that all children and adults may learn provided they have world class methods, curriculum, and opportunities to learn and be educated.  Harvard studies emphasizing the modalities of learning; as well as a variety of literacy and communications methods will be used as world class examples of successful education methods.

The politicization of education has too often acted as a barrier to the science and art of educating all students to their potential. President Obama has most recently referred to the politicization of education as unnecessary ‘culture wars.’ Obama uses public and independent charter schools as examples of education reform. Proposals of merit pay and world class standards are currently being discussed in the Obama education.

Please join in the discussion on both levels of interest; world class methods and strategies that have proven results, as well as political challenges that prevent educators, parents and students from reaching each child in the classroom.
