As our nation continues to struggle economically and our politicians continue to fight amongst themselves, our children are punished by being forced to sit on the sidelines. Each year we are spending billions of dollars on war, oil, financial bailouts and other areas that are doing very little to secure our long-term future. All the while, our greatest investment, the children of this nation, are not being given the attention and support they need. We cannot continue to leave the future generations of this country with a staggering bill for the mistakes we have made in the past.
Through the correct educational reformations, we can once again provide our children with the encouragement that they need to change the world. Listed below are 7 ways that educational reforms can benefit our country.
7. Innovative & Creative Solutions to National Problems
Our children need to develop positive attitudes and faith in themselves early on in life. Encouragement needs to be the core of any such educational reform. A child equipped with a good attitude possesses the one tool necessary for success. With this tool, they can accomplish anything.
“Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.” Neil Postman
Children do not need information slammed down their throats, they need to discover how powerful their minds are. In the right setting, with a ton of encouragement, they will find their potential. Through encouragement they can unleash their creativity and one day be able to provide solutions to the problems we cannot solve today. If we empower our children now, they will empower the world tomorrow.
6. Economic Stability
Our current economic crisis did not happen overnight, nor will it be fixed through some quick policy change. It’s going to take some time and persistence and we are going to have to start being more responsible with our money. Therefore, the quickest way to an economic recovery is through our children.
If at an early age, children are taught the basic principles of managing their finances, they will grow up with the ability to handle their money efficiently. Today, we are seeing what happens when a nation mismanages their money. We must learn from this lesson and teach it to our children so that they don’t suffer the same fate.
“Financial education needs to become a part of our national curriculum and scoring systems so that it’s not just the rich kids that learn about money.. it’s all of us.” David Bach
David Bach is right. The only difference between the rich and the poor are the principles in which each live by. Children of the wealthy often grow up to be wealthy, because they are exposed to the daily choices that a wealthy person makes. The opposite is true for children of those that struggle financially. Those children learn that money is an object that causes great struggle and turmoil and grow up with those thoughts engrained in their heads.
There have been many instances when poor men and women have gained for themselves extraordinary amounts of wealth by learning these key principles. We can teach our children these principles. The end result will be a stabilized economy and a more enthusiastic and harmonious nation. Read the rest of this entry »
Random genetic mutation and natural selection were basic to what became known as Darwinian evolutionary theory. The processes of chance mutation and orderly natural selection appear to be contradictory and this became a matter of concern to Darwin. In his Origin of Species, Darwin wrote; I am in a utterly hopeless muddle. I cannot think that the world, as we see it, is the result of chance; and yet I cannot look at each separate thing as the result of design. The question arose, did nature come about by accident or is it all part of an intelligent universal design?
Darwin did not have access to the mathematics we use today. With access to Fractal Logic, he may well have been able to reconcile the two viewpoints. Fractal geometrical logic is able to deal with the endless complexities of nature that confused Darwinism. Free of Euclidean geometrical linear reasoning, fractal logic can derive order from random complexity.
In Darwin’s time, such enlightenment was not possible. Darwin’s logically incomplete theory of evolution, emphasising a survival of the fittest concept, led to the acceptance of the dictatorial economic and social policies of the Rev. Thomas Malthus. Mathus’ ruthless sentiments became the policies of the East India Company, which employed Charles Darwin.
During the 20th Century they gave rise to the racial and religious structure of the Nazi Third Reich. Darwinian ‘natural selection’, which lent credence to 20th century Fascist leadership and other forms of unethical government.
Up to the 20th century, the thirteen volumes of Euclid’s Elements (circa 300 BCE) were considered to be last word on the subject of ancient Grecian mathematics. However, such mathematics are unable to address the problems of either random genetic mutation or natural selection. Although Euclidean solid geometry (three dimensional structures) to a degree, does emulate the principles of nature, natural shapes do not come in the form of perfect cubes, cones and cylinders.
James Gleick, in his book, Chaos: Making a New Science, inferred that where chaos begins, Euclidean logic becomes incoherent. He wrote; that physicists investigating the laws of nature have always been at a loss to explain the disordered atmosphere and the turbulent ocean.
Eventually, several American and European scientists made the breakthrough. That group comprised of mathematicians, physicists, biologists and chemists, all of whom sought connections between different sorts of irregularities. Gleick pointed out that a new geometrical logic emerged when people such as Benoit Mandelbrot formulated changes to Euclidean thinking. Yet, Mandlebrot himself, was unaware that living systems were influenced by infinite aspects of fractal geometrical logic. For example, Mandlebrot, Einstein, and Bertrand Russell, when developing the mathematics of the 19th century logician Bernard Bolzano, failed to realise the significance of his mathematical proof about, what is called, the strange attractor, now known to link the living process to the property of infinite fractal reality.
