Why do we wish to transform the school system?
Traditional schooling is not the only way a child can acquire knowledge. The ability to learn is innate and we need to trust human intuition and acknowledge that all children have the capacity to learn and create value. If we embrace children’s differences and allow them to continue their intuitive development, if we support them with love, inspiration and guidance instead of a one-size-fits-all system both the individual and society will strengthen.
We live in the 21st century and not in the industrial society of the 18th century
We live in a world where technological development is immense. Where two thirds of our young children most likely will get a job that does not even exist today. We need to have confidence in not knowing the end goal of each child’s education.
We have never had better learning possibilities than today and the easy and fast access to information can make the world an educational playground for children and adults. In order to manoeuvre in this world of possibilities we need to know ourselves. Our innate and individual skills have to be cared for and we need to learn how we benefit from technology instead of misusing it.
The amount of stress in a large part of the world and the increase in anxiety, depression and stress in the traditional school systems make the school look more like an obstacle than the way to a balanced and happy life. In order to help children and thereby society we have to change the traditional system as quickly as possible.
Adapting is not always a good thing
When we encourage children to adapt to traditional learning principles, we are cutting them off from their natural self-development at their own pace, and their innate qualities and individual and intuitive forces are restricted.
Furthermore, the learning principles of traditional schooling demand teachers to assess children in all their doings. When children are being rebuked for not following the class, they instinctively adapt, and this constant monitoring and lack of influence blurs their intuition and creativity.
We are all different, for this reason, it does not make sense to use standardised measurements, and this is not fair to either students or teachers.
