Educating the next generation…



Let’s educate our children … let’s educate ourselves about what education really is… as for sure it is not the ‘copy paste of skills and information’ only…
Let’s teach the new generation to think for themselves and to make educated choices for society by allowing their heads and their hearts to cooperate… Let’s educate an intelligent generation that knows what to do, where to do it, when to do it and why to do it… with the courage to break every inhumane, only profit and short term results driven rule their ancestors have ever implemented…

I like to believe in the power of the future generation… but we need the power of the teachers of this one to make that dream come true…! The teachers and parents of this generation are holding the faith of humanity in their hands… and I have deep respect for every one of them who make the effort to not just ‘copy paste’ and brainwash our children into ‘obedience’ to a society that has proven itself to be destructive.

May we have/be courageous teachers… for a future with bright perspectives…

We need teachers who are willing to educate ‘rebels’, teachers who are role-models for free, out of the box ways of thinking…
We need teachers who are willing to stand their ground against a dumbing education system, who say NO to educative programs that are not fitting the evolution of the world, that are not ‘holistic’ and only left brain oriented.

We need parents who support those teachers. As long as parents want to see ‘good notes’ on a kids exams, teachers will have to train children to achieve ‘good notes’ to make sure that they are good teachers and don’t lose their jobs.

It would be much easier for them when parents would prefer their kids to be ‘happy’ with the education they get, instead of being ‘good students’…
And happy does not mean : lazy, without discipline, not motivated to learn stuff, hanging around, … happy can go perfectly well with ‘study’… in fact studying is much easier when a student is happy. It’s the unhappiness that makes young people go astray… not the lack of ‘good teachers who know how to teach prescribed programs’.

It’s a playground where parents and teachers play a huge role and should stand and stick together.
So next time your kid comes home from school try not to ask him about his results, ask him if he is happy with his teacher, if he is happy with what he learned today…, if he is happy with how the lesson was presented instead…
And take time to LISTEN to the feed back, really listen, and don’t panic, don’t think that if a kid tells you he hates school he will be a failure for the rest of his life. Don’t let your own short term orientation on achievement be the filter to look at your kid’s education…
A kid/student is basically a client that is receiving the product we call ‘lesson’ from a teacher… isn’t it obvious to ask the client every now and then to give feedback about the service???

Let’s encourage the teachers of our children to make the children happy at school… let’s give the teachers our permission to make that happiness a priority… and trust that education will be less stressful, more fulfilling, more creative, more worth going to school for…

It’s a huge challenge when we look at it from the perspective of teaching programs… but just by adding the ingredient ‘happiness’ into our expectations we have of education we can start a snowball effect with huge transformational powers…

It will take some time for sure, … but when we transform the education of our children we are transforming the future. And that’s more than worth trying…

I wish this world many ‘happy students’!

About Loesja Klimczak - www.mayanatlantyda.org

In the past 53 years I walked, ran, crawled… many roads on an ongoing journey to discover the inevitable freedom of the soul, the joy of being alive, the value of the teacher we call pain, the depth of human wisdom and the meaning of human madness. I have been deeply touched by the kindness in the eyes, hearts, words and helping hands of friends, teachers, soulmates, … even strangers. I have been all of that and all of them. The most valuable lesson I have ever learned is that ‘there’s nothing to fear’. For the next 50 years I am committed to share this awareness in everything I do. It’s a joy to share this blog with sisters so close to my soul and touching your life with my words fills me with deep gratitude. May these words carry the love from my heart to yours.

  1. Loesja, you are right on the money with this! My 10yr old comes home disillusioned all the time because he feels things are being repeated and wasting his time when he wantso progress into the new that inspires him. I encourage him to look at these challenges as wisdom to carry into his adulthood about the things that need to be changed and begin to untie the knots of the cookie cutter system that seems to be in place at this time. For now, the world measures our children on the same stick which is more confining than inspirational!

    • Yes, our children have so much wisdom we need to encourage… it would be good if they would not have to wait untill they grow up to put it into use… it would be nice if teachers would open up enough to that wisdom already… at least to validate that wisdom in their students… would be a nice first step… blessings to your son 🙂 !
