THE BARD’S SCHOOL OF THOUGHT…
In understanding what it is we hope for when we look to the future, it is important to realize that the value of correct living, the value of outstanding civilizations and the value of how we evolve, progress and preserve our existence for the future, depends on how we raise our young to carry on our legacy of ‘self preservation!’
This is not a joke neither is it funny when you consider that the ultimate destination and the worst case scenario of what may, or may not happen depends on how we choose to educate ourselves and consequently our young.
It is for this reason then, that a new form of education must materialize in the present state, in order to maintain a timely balance and thus support the very foundation of our existence and the platform it has had the privilege of aspiring to, to date!
From a psychological perspective, a strong healthy adult is the result of a strong healthy mind. A strong healthy mind is the result of character building during these years.
To this end should the curriculum for the very young involve exploits of a creative and inquiring nature? There ought to be no severity here to disturb the growth of the spirit destined to become great in the profession of choice! No stark reality of an exam pass required before progress is assured! There should be nurturing and reassurance! There should be self love and confidence! There should be thoughts of wonderment and adventure! There should be thoughts of endurance and determination! (Ever unfolding are the leaves upon the tree! Ever unfolding our we!)
THIS IS DYNAMIC!
THESE ARE THE CHILDREN OF MEN BORN TO BE KINGS!
THIS IS ASPIRING TO GREATNESS!
THIS IS human…….
Do not cloud their pure vision with tainted error, for our wrong doing is for us to put right! Ours is the super ego, not theirs! Ours is the greed and need for money, not theirs’ ours is the fault! Not theirs!
Let them dance let them sing, let them feel glad to be alive, glad to be here, glad to be Human!

Students who attend higher education, especially those between the ages of eleven to sixteen, must be board out of their tiny minds with the all our yesterdays curriculum!
For God sake man can’t you see what you are doing! Look at the stagnant minds of decay that are festering in the city streets with a gun in the hand! Look at the suicidal victim lying in the morgue!
HOW MANY KIDS SCIVE SCHOOL?
HOW MANY KIDS TO AFRAID TO GO TO SCHOOL!
WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR YOU TO REALIZE THAT THEY WANT MORE OF AN EDUCATION THAN WHAT YOU ARE ABLE TO GIVE!
THEY DON’T WANT YOUR STUFFY BOARD ROOM MEETINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO AT THE END OF ALL THIS!
THESE KIDS WHAT TO AIM FOR THE MOON AND THEY REQUIRE THE EDUCATION THAT’S GOING TO GET THEM THERE, TODAY!
Let us then agree that the first steps toward a healthy education must be born of imagination. Let us then go on to consider the second which surely must be full of creative activity which requires instruction. Yet must this instruction be of its own free will if it is to flow abundantly clear!
It is important that children are interested in the activities chosen, thus must it be that a greater portion of activity be chosen by the student themselves. For each excels in that which is enjoyed best!
School ought to be a place of activity where all things of interest can be understood before being undertaken. Where choice is as fresh as the first signs of spring and not decayed by the demands of another.
Lunch times should be as chatter amongst the happy, where all are able and free to take up pleasurable activity supplied by the school…
A games room with x box live availability for those with an aspiring mathematical mind!
A half pipe in the play ground for those who enjoy competition and sports!
A music recording studio!
A Swimming pool!
Culture Study for those who want to know about their roots.
A quiet room for those who want to rest… (One for the teachers here pleases!)
It is important to move with the times when it comes to education and the curriculum chosen, for kids these days want the moon and they need to know the astrophysics that goes with I.T!
