Education seems to be a controversial subject in this country. It’s as though people think that we can shape children by filtering the information they’re exposed to. But parents and guardians should be abundantly aware that their children will inevitably leave the nest and so our job as parents or influential community members is to prepare them for solo flight. This deep existence we all share with infinitely diverse perspectives which all exist globally online in honesty and/or as trolls.
Should parents be allowed to use their kid’s portion of public funding on schools which teach a restricted curriculum? Should these schools, or any schools, be encouraged to teach as our forefathers have done and present right as divinity and wrong as demonic? In the end censorship disguised as education will always look like obstruction and diversion, the opposite of integrity or grace. I guess I could be biased but truth is truth regardless of what others say or believe. Truth can’t be sifted away because reality is the water in which experiences grow, bob, or sink.
I would like to attempt a blog series presenting observations of humanity without narrative or interpretation. It’s just an idea, I have no idea whether I can pull it off. But I hope it can be used as a reference to springboard past the baggage of the changeable human interpretation of various controversial subjects. My first project will be a topic I’m fairly familiar with: Evolution.
This is a long term thing, don’t expect and update on this in the near future. 🙂
