Been enjoying the text/data/techno/human/transactions of the collective
consciounness lately,henry/eilleen et .al.
if fun was excluded from art making and learning I'd quit.
Seriously the way I'd like to see the whole structure of education(and I
don't have a clue what Whole Language is) and learning is to what is basic to
the student.Fear,love,sorrow,pain,joy,sharing,society,etc....i figure students
have to learn there is a single consciousness ,,the world,,, is what we are...
Art is a fun way to open up the students to realities that us adults have pretty much left behind...Most of us just want a comfortable life ,security etc...
Great teachers....I don't know ...yeah there are some of course but how many do you need to change the future of humanity.Pretty heavy I know....
Teaching kids to read and write and make really good stuff is worthwhile
and admirable and necessary but there is other things that I am hoping
to get across which is that there is no need to prove anything,there is no need to have any ambition etc... what for to join the mass of iniquity...
Parents will love me I know ...Again though,i must admit I'm trying to
take another approach I may change my mind tommorow..I love kids they are
fun to watch and listen to .
My seven year old wrote a note on our door when we left the home tonight
it read "we have gone out, be back in 100 years suckers"i thought to myself
I hope that little candle that keeps that fun in him never goes out or gets
snuffed out by an education system...Tall order?
