Like Socrates we believe the purpose of education is to "draw out" the genius that is already within a student. However it seems our Education System tries to fill students with knowledge instead of teaching them how to discover it. Treating them like machines rather than the valuable resource they are.
Every student deserves to be challenged, inspired and nurtured in a way that connects with each of them individually. It’s the Systems responsibility to energize students with ideas and experiences that encourage them to grow and develop.
We believe that education reform can Energize Students by addressing four key topics:
- Technology: Utilize modern technology to help engage students.
- Curriculum: Enable students to discover their talents through theoretical as well as practical courses of study.
- Structure: Eliminate failing programs that are not focused on the students.
- Culture: Celebrate each students uniqueness and tailor lesson plans to their learning styles.
We invite you to voice your thoughts and opinions about education quality, connect with others in the community, and read first hand, the personal accounts of students. We encourage you to participate in constructive discussions via our Forum and our regularly updated Blog.
Together we can focus our education system back where it belongs, on the students.
