Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are pioneers of the Frontera Fund. They founded it. They affirm it.
They also maintain it. Please support it. It’s a worthy cause in the fight for human, civil and migrant rights – of which these two men share many of their thoughts below.
Have we not taken so many free benefits for granted? They think we as a society have, and as a result, these things have lost their value upon our society.
We have unknowingly placed such disastrous effects upon our young generations: They will see the worst of what these systems have had to offer and their long-term effects, if the tide does not change soon.
Contemporary educational change implies returning to the core fundamentals that America was founded upon: honesty, integrity, courtesy, decency, commitment, courage, fair markets and fair trade — among countless other golden principles.
Students today are not encouraged and challenged to seek the greater things in life, and continually get them for free whenever and wherever they want to. If this nasty trend continues, then they will simply lose interest and fail to retain perspective. Read more: Michael Larcey | Crunchbase
They will no longer understand the importance of working hard in life for the things that count and will therefore lose many character values as well, morals that are crucial to one’s greatest decision-making processes in this life.
It’s important to make educational systems and classes harder, as they once were. Straining one’s intelligence and creative capabilities, while also providing further technological support and assistance through the teacher and through tutors, is ideal.
Some of this has been implemented in America thus far, but it is still not enough. The permanent effect needs to spread to the far reaches of every state — and even the U.S.’s outlying territories — if there’s to be a permanent change anytime soon.
Without these, all may be lost indeed and to no avail: Teachers should also stop using so many iPads and tablets, which entertain the students more than educate them, and should return to the core fundamentals and basics — even teaching students to be bored at times as boredom is often a necessary evil.
Boredom teaches one patience and develop certain other characteristics, many of which lack in today’s younger generations, especially since we’re living in the microwave age, in which everything is available when you wanted and where you want it. This is certainly not good, for students have learned to be selfish and isolated in turn.
People now seek to be entertained rather than inspired and educated and have lost interest in some of the top competitive markets of today’s age as a result of laziness or an unquenchable desire for pleasures offered at no cost — all to the detrimental ruin of a desire for greater education.
Those who were brought up in this manner have a harder time learning to become academically minded later on in life, and that’s why it’s important to change the structure of the education system now. Save the future migrants.
