Why we Need to Listen to the Children
Today’s educational system is broken, an archaic process based on a colonization that is both dulling and ineffective. We need to tap into the creative souls of children, listen to them, and acknowledge that students and teachers alike are suffering. If we approach educating our children from a life- and soul-affirming place, they will begin to thrive.
Teachers, administrators, and parents are all asked to buy into this colonizing model by a compulsory government school system, and shifting it will require an awareness described in the field of liberation psychology: a clear vision of what damage the current system might be doing, and a vision of the common aims of all who wish to educate children as free thinkers from a position of love and secure relationships above all.
We can do this through an educational system that focuses on the development of the whole child, one that allows for attachment, relationship, and love in education, factors that are known to be primary in the developing child.
