This article present the essence of a system required for the creation of a better educational system, which I call “Constructive Education. The world is changing. The development of the last 150 years, has brought humanity to progress and evolve into “Globalization”. The process itself is healthy, as it connects people around the world and promote a general consciousness. Which for the first time in history can make us understand we are all humans, sharing the same planet and fighting for promoting a better world. Without any doubt, ideas of fear and separation are still broadly hold in the head of many. Which mainly reflect a mental stage that is no more relevant to the healthy and progressive evolution of the human race.
Our capacity to share and create ideas between people and cultures, are the main tools that brought the progress of our days.Nevertheless, the main obstacle for the creation of a better global future hide in our education.
Individual and societies are a direct consequence of local education. It is the educational system that construct the way of thinking in the mind of the young. And the same system that teach us how to read and react to the event of the outside world. For the sake of promoting a better world, a change is required in the educational system.
The education of those days, teaches the young to be terrified, full of guilt and hater. Contributing to their separation from their peers around the world, which doesn’t promote progress or a society that sustains individuals. As the world is changing, the educational system and its values should be closely observed. From the other side, we should be very careful regarding how we change it. As it will determine the mental stage of our children and future societies. In the Book “Back to Ourselves” a proposal for the standard of a constructive education is proposed:
“Constructive education is an education that fundamentally gives an individual the tools needed to acquire information from all sorts. give one the capacity to appreciate and doubt the source of information in hand, and to develop his own conclusions. while maintaining the general understanding of what he does not know.”
The hater and fear promoted by the media regarding immigration and different cultures is dangerous. As it promotes violence and separation. These feelings are easy to manipulate, as they exist mainly due to the malfunction of their society, problematic governments and the burden of an unproductive economical system.
Hating the hater or being afraid of violent movement that act out of fear of the other, is not helping creating better societies or a better world. The creation of strong individual holding the right tools for progress is needed. The creation of such individuals, will inevitably actively create strong societies. It is the key for a better future. The media should concentrate more in the problems of local education and less in propaganda of hater and fear.
In the next posts, I will develop the concept and start to show practical implications of “Constructive Education”.
