A great, free manifesto from Seth Godin, Stop Stealing Dreams discusses the problems with our education system and challenges everyone to come up with solutions. While our first reaction may be to dismiss what Mr. Godin has to say, the more we think about it, the more we know our education system needs an overhaul. We need to challenge the next generations to think for themselves, to develop their talents and to bring more to the table.
This isn't only for people who have children or who are planning on having children. Every last one of us should be concerned about the education of our youth. Even if they are not your children, they will be your future co-workers, employees, bosses, doctors, lawyers, senators, presidents, etc. These are the people who will run the country as we get older. This makes the education of them a concern for us all.
Read Stop Stealing Dreams and come up with some of your own ideas on how to make improvements. Then, share these ideas with everyone who will listen.
