Engineering/Concept > Synergistic Learning

Imagine a School Where

-Tests and tuition don’t exist-
-Personal initiative is the curriculum-
-Systems rather than Subjects are taught-
This business and educational model was nearly funded, then halted. It awaits reactivation if and when needed.
Students learn through project based learning where systems instead of specific subjects are the focus. Synergy (a combination of things that make up a whole far exceeding the total of the individual parts added alone) is nurtured more succinctly by learning from top down instead of bottom to top. Personal initiative is also nurtured through this structure.

-Students primarily teach each other and then teach us adults-
Teachers become more mentors helping guide students with other students broad based knowledge learning and the ephemeralization that comes from it.

-Technological and financial wealth are generated instead of spent-
Schools are run like businesses where turning intelligence in to a strong financial base is sought after. Not only does this empower the school to focus on education instead of regulation standards, but it also empowers the students knowing that the skills they’re learning are useful today in helping their communities both locally and globally.

Why?

In a world where humanity’s footprint is causing the loss of species at an unprecedented rate, and where many of humanity’s lifestyles are altering the chemical composition of the earth’s atmosphere, soil and ocean, we stand at the edge of a wonderful opportunity. We have, in this century, a chance to become globally accountable, and responsible to our planet and all of its children. This is because we now know humanity is the cause of these unintentional events, and knowing a problem exists is always the first step towards solving it. Yet to tell any human being to simply think or act this way or that for any reason, even if for a common good such as building for a better future for humanity and our planet, is nothing short of a crime against that person and to humanity as a whole. Coercion when used even for the best intentions is still coercion.

The most valuable goal for humanity as a species will forever be when we can offer an individual ever clearer physical and metaphysical tools of objectivity and observation of Universe, how it behaves, and how to relate to it, so  we’re empowered to make better intuitive/systems driven decisions. It’s what’s responsible for everything great our species has ever created. From works of art, written works, architecture, technology, and everything else, all of the people responsible for those things were guided by the patterns that were exposed to them. Einstein was able to see patterns that later became the theory of relativity, in no small part from the patterns that Newton had discovered previously.

Synergy doesn’t provide set answers so decisions become easier. Synergy provides relationships enabling us to make better, deeper, more well informed decisions.
