How much does the Home Life of a Child effect their Education

 

TeachersClarksville, TN – Educators have been under the gun for the perceived lack of progress children are making in school. All kinds of arm chair jockeys have jumped in to “fix” the educational system. Testing has become the mecca for deciding what a child knows or doesn’t know. Evaluating teachers has become the bar for whether or not they retain their jobs.

Let’s look at the other side of the picture for a minute as we start to throw the baby out with the bathwater in education.

How Much Influence on a Child's Education Does Home Life Provide.

Dreams and Bones are what we’re made of

 

TeachersClarksville, TN – David Mallet is a folk singer and song writer whose name you may or may not know. Originally from Maine, he lived in Nashville for many years but returned to his home state in 1997. His signature theme is called “Garden Song” and contains the line, “We are made of dreams and bones.” Somehow this describes the human condition as only a poet can.

When educating a child, one has to always keep in mind the dual side of our existence on this planet. It’s not uncommon when you are working diligently on some concept to be interrupted by a kindergartener or first grader who claims dramatically that he is bleeding and be shown a pinprick at the end of a tiny finger. The intellect and physical life of a child are always interconnected.

Education curriculum needs to go back to the basics.
