I saw this, the "distraction of children" when I was teaching from 2001 to 2007. Education is not valued, not taught by parents to be valued and students, parents and administrators expect to be fed information like it will just subliminally sink into their heads and will be known. Laziness is the key definition of our society today. I'd demonstrate that holding a book on your head would not automatically infuse knowledge into your life. You have to make an effort to learn. Open that book, apply the knowledge, and find the interests that you have from that one aspect to then do some self-teaching by exploring or researching on your own. They were too busy being on the internet playing games or expecting sports or music to be their salvation. I'm speaking generalities, of course, and there were a few students who did understand that education is proactive and not passive. Not enough though.

360 degrees of awareness / open vs. closed / embracing change vs. protecting status quo / the wonder of what we could see and know in a day vs. the know-it-all tomorrow that makes today the same as yesterday / my stake in the ground has more Truth than your take in the ground, so I’ll blow your stake up / a mind open to the wonder of now vs. a mind locked in the box of the “educated” view / I am accountable vs. I was controlled and that’s all I know so now I control / never mind that control is one of the large complete and total illusions—a veritable grand irrationality… / we are on the cusp of an age / may we move forward as an example of 360 degrees of awareness informing and inspiring ourselves and all we touch: age 0 – whatever … as accountable beings, with eyes to see the wonder of what is and ears to hear the waves of our Oneness that echo everywhere / ask what is in every now and when you deal with what is, know that there is your power and your Truth and your chance to illuminate your self’s “education…”

Finland has excellent educational system..and France has too. Their teachers are well paid and high education means Status! In Sweden the teachers status is falling - culture and education don´t have the value it used to..
Everything measures by Economy now.

Terrific timing, I was recently reflecting that the US now has a political party that actually resembles the Taliban in its derision toward education and artistic accomplishments. TV audiences see this played out 24/7 on TV with banter about "election" politics while people are starving, homeless, and out of work.

It all depends on what you love. In aus here, one of the best colleges in the recent state (NAPLAN) tests is a community college who don't have academic achievement as their first priority. (See Alternative approach aces NAPLAN tests, by Jewel Topfield and Marc Moncrief, The Age, Feb 28th). Happiness, viability and academic achievement are the 1st, 2nd and 3rd priorities at the Fitzroy Community College.

As a speech pathologist, I know for sure, that the way is to look at developing childrens's speech and language is to look at what they love and build on that - and that, intrinsically, means pulling in their family and social values. There's no way that you can take a 12 year old stammerer and do 1:1 in school - however, if you (maybe) work with a male, strong role model Phys Ed teacher, getting a disco or music workshop or drama thing going - and then start up a 'chatting you up' class - hmm! Look at the interest there!

Rhetoric

There are two educational systems in play around the world. The first and most effective is the trivium or classical education which gives the student the keys to learn how to learn - this system is taught in elite schools and gives them an advantage over the "Prussian educational system" which is given to the masses and basically confuses them with irrelevant facts, turning them away from learning. This sets up a disrespect for education and learning (and society in general)as there is no context or logic to what is being taught. Coupled with the operant conditioning that occurs in school, the masses are educated to be good slaves and the elite are educated to be leaders. No wonder then, that the kids today, who are far more conscious than the last generation are rejecting the conditioning and turning away from a system that lies, manipulates and cheats them and are losing themselves in the now. See John Taylor Gatto and the Tragedy & Hope website. Yes, learning is lifelong and all of us are constantly learning, however, not all of us have the ability to discern what we need to learn and how we can become free thinkers. We need to look outside the system for the chance to really know.

I have been stumbling rutohgh astrology book after astrology book, and while I have certainly been enjoying the journey, and picking up lots of wonderful information along the way I needed to pull it all together! Soul Purpose Astrology was the PERFECT book to get my head wrapped around the basic concepts of astrology and how to grasp the BIG PICTURE. I do believe the North and South Nodes are extremely important and the study of them can lift us to higher planes of learning and this book explains it succintly. Margaret Koolman pulls it all together in an easy to read and understand book. I thank her and thank Llewellyn for printing this valuable book. If you are a new or intermediate astrology student OR want a more intuitive way opf learning astrology this is THE book for you. I give it a HUGE endorsement.
