I have never been a teacher except to my own two children. If I have to do anything with a school the basics will remain. They are the foundation on which studies are built. You can’t remove a foundation from a building otherwise it won’t stand.
I will teach them good values (besides studies), and I will do my utmost to make them grow into better humans. Young minds are impressionable. They are like plants, and the best way to mold them to grow straight is to begin at a tender age.
I have heard young ones say “my teacher said this” or “teacher says”. For them that’s the law or the truth.
Last night at dinner time I heard IB saying “Do you know if a man travels at the speed of light, he can go into future?” He insisted that it was a proven fact in science.
I kept thinking what really his teacher had said?
The New School
You get to redesign school as we know it from the ground up. Will you do away with reading, writing, and arithmetic? What skills and knowledge will your school focus on imparting to young minds?
