Learning Rated Everyone

by Erin Dijkema  
12/09/2011 / Family

The system of education in North America today is considered one of the highest in the world. This perception isn't surprising because we are also one of the richest and privileged continents in the world, attracting people searching for a richer experience. This education has improved our economy, allowing people to take the initiative to fill a need in the changing society and share it. This education has allowed us to experience knowledge in so many disciplines, of so many cultures and countries; we have the allusion of having all we need. But isn't this education also rated? This question has been on my mind for a while now; is there education rated for poor and education rated for rich? It seems that the poorer you are the less respect you get from the school system, making encouraging education hard to grasp. And the richer you are, the more potential the system sees it needs to coach out of you. Who says that those with a predisposition towards the trades and foundational services for society are less worthy of patient and quality learning than those who require more scholarly education to give us more advances in the sciences, politics and technology. Every child is pushed to aim for the all-important goal of university from birth, despite the consideration of the skills and talents; harming their identity and self-worth. While learning is wonderful and everyone should be doing so every day of their lives; learning has become a means to an end, rather than an end to itself contributing to the means of life. Rather than judging outwardly whether a child is fit for a good education, many teachers and parents have been surprised by looking inwardly and waiting patiently for the child's light to shine. Focusing on a better future consisting of monetary and status success is looking at education of a child is in a subjective, monotonous and almost selfish way ; you may be pushing a child into a competitive, unfulfilling life just to appease society's high expectations and point system. These expectations also not surprisingly make life choices difficult and seem impossible with the pressure, causing insecurity and complete rejection. We need to objectively focus on the child's needs, skills, hopes and interests. Putting all value in learning and experience allows the child room to grow and experiment in searching for God's plan for them. Free them from the shackles of the expectations of society, allow them to see the beauty of learning and help them find the guidance of the Holy Spirit and you will find that they will have gained something even more precious, and prejudiced-free; God's true wisdom.
