Dont JustTeach-Give Kids A ChanceAre we creating an environment of curriculum and methodology of training that nurtures the idea—You are unique—just like everyone else?

What is the Original purpose of education? I grew up in a home where the Socratic method was encouraged, meaning we learned by asking questions.

My parents encouraged us to think, rather than tell us the conclusion and skip the process of deduction. Here is a comparison of the definition of education from two sources. As we know, words matter.  Clinton tried to redefine the word “is”. Let’s see what affect post-modern influence has had on the word .

Definition 1. Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, values, beliefs and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through storytelling, discussion, teaching, training, and or research. Education may also include informal transmission of such information from one human being to another.

Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but learners may also educate themselves (autodidactic learning). [1] Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Wikipedia. (a more liberal and recent “definition of education, including “habits” and social issues that I would not have used in defining “classical education” )

COMPARED TO MERRIAM-WEBSTER DICTIONARY:

Definition 2: ed·u·ca·tion noun \ˌe-jə-ˈkā-shən\

: the action or process of teaching someone especially in a school, college, or university

: the knowledge, skill, and understanding that you get from attending a school, college, or university

: a field of study that deals with the methods and problems of teaching – Merriam-Webster Dictionary.

These two definitions use very different words and meanings to describe the same word, “EDUCATION”. This fact alone helps us understand the enormous disconnect in modern “public education”. Over-regulation and allowance of Administrative Bureaucracy that has grown to enormous proportions and has stunted due process of the individual parent, student and teacher and local school board, has been the malignancy of our generation. It has dangerously metastasized to a point where the next generation of American youth is at serious risk.
