Educational Credo

Access to life-affirming education should be a basic human right,
available to everyone, not only those who can afford it.

*****

The product of education should be leader-creators,
not follower-consumers.

*****

"You either have it or you don't!" is a poisonous myth
that tragically prevents people from reaching their full potential.

*****

The greatest gift in life is not "talent".
The greatest gift is love.

*****

The whole person is important: body, mind, and spirit.
All teaching should embrace and celebrate this holistic view.

*****

Education should be a joyous, cooperative adventure...
not a stressful, competitive ordeal.

*****

There is no such thing as overnight success.
Genuine accomplishment always requires love and work.

*****

True education is more than informational.
True education is transformational;
it cultivates curiosity, critical thinking,
self-awareness, love of learning, creativity,
problem-solving, cooperation, and a humanistic world-view.

*****

We are largely trapped in an educational culture that
reveres and rewards left-brain capabilites.
This usually entails the exclusion and rejection of the right side.
The unfortunate result is that most of us go through life
with half (maybe more) of our fabulous brains tied behind our backs.
The right side of our brain is an enormous untapped resource...
capable of total awareness, profound wisdom, and unique ways of knowing.
Life will be happier, healthier, and more fun if we embrace the right side of our brains.

*****

Learning to do anything of value is not easy,
but it’s not the kind of hard that most people think.
It is certainly not tedious labor.
Done right, learning is a joyous process of discovery
that builds confidence and becomes its own reward.

*****

Anyone with the right guidance and work ethic can make
transformational progress in any honorable endeavor.
If you study the right things the right way,
you should not expect to make mere incremental improvement.
You should expect to make monumental breakthroughs...
quantum leaps in knowledge, wisdom, insight, and skill.
