Visitors from planet Edu explored the educational system on planet Earth and discovered ineffective traditions, habits and processes. Educators on planet Earth, after participating in a think tank about the purpose and methods of education, decided to lay the foundation for redesigning the educational system.
Designing schools for WeKids urges a new purpose of education: Creating meaning for students and value for the community.
When schools, parents and the local community dedicate themselves to the higher aim of developing responsible citizenship, schools will benefit both the student and society. When schools, parents and the local community dedicate themselves to the defense and development of democracy, the content and process of education will become much clearer.
Designing schools for WeKids claims that educational transformation is both necessary and possible.
What kinds of citizens are needed to best be able to preserve and develop our democracy?
What kinds of schools and communities best help students and staff to discover, develop and take advantage of their talents?
How can a school foster the type of collaboration that is needed to build both a just and entrepreneurial society?
How can schools enhance trust, civility, and collaboration, the foundations of democracy?
These are questions that need to be asked – bluntly and urgently.
