Education for the new age
The world today is no longer defined by borders or walls, we live in a time of globalization. A time wherein we and our children are citizens of the world, the walls are disintegrating, we are sharing more than space, we are sharing ideas, outlooks, problems, and solutions. We are in constant preparation for a future we cannot predict and herein lies the challenge. The challenge in armoring our children for a world that's not only out of our reach but also beyond our comprehension and imagination. And here is where education equips us. Today, in these complex times the mere capacity to respond is not enough, the world demands clarity, conciseness, and yet depth. It is through education that our responses develop and vary, through its exposure, it's experienced and through that awakening that we are inevitably defined.
The world has become more open than its ever been and so the need of today is to develop an educational system that is global in its functionality and sensitive in its individuality, one that develops our capacity to grasp and enables our consciousness to question. Today the objective of education has changed from educating for survival to now educating for excellence, for progress, and most of all for possibility. Education today must elevate the mind and sustain the spirit. With the building of character must also come compassion, creativity and competence.
Our aim should be for excellence so that when our children share any platform with the world let them stand as equals in opportunity, in exposure and knowledge and if they are ever defined let it be by their Grit, their Will, and by their Humanity.
We are no longer educating for the future. We are however educating - The Future.
