The Education System

A Sun-Pluto aspect on your birthday this year will make you assertive in the extreme. You don’t have to be domineering but you probably will be. The good news is it’s a role you seem destined to play, so play it for all it is worth. It could be fun.

Chances are you will go too far or say too much today and regret it tomorrow, but you can worry about that when the moment arrives. Social gatherings will be a lot of fun and you will impress people with your ideas. Who knew you were such a radical?

I am having a problem burning the article I wrote yesterday to the World Wide Web, I even deleted it and reposted it and still no results, I hope it reaches the people who it was meant for.  It is posted under this one anyway.  And on the subject of being radical I want to mention these two points again that the two last posting make a thorough point.




By: Frank Paul Jones AKA Gambino


Colin Powell makes a strong argument and what he says make sense but is not practical unless we make drastic changes in the educational system.  Maybe we need to revamp the whole educational system to support technological advancements.  We live in a high tech environment whereby calculators can be used in place of memorization and spell checkers in place of hard copy dictionaries and robotics in place of manpower.  Maybe our system needs to catch up to the times and reality and graduate our students by 16 years of age with a vocational skill by 18 years of age prior to college.  We have to change the educational system to support our modern economy and implement technology in the classrooms as the real way of life.  We need to replace memorization with practical and technological skills and teach our children how to think with computer assist at a young age. Because the bottom line is that is what it all comes down to and school would be fun again to the student who today drops out.  OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS DESIGNED FOR FAILURE AS A MEANS TO INCARCERATE. 


Music & education a futuristic approach


We always say children of today will be the leaders of tomorrow, but even good leadership has a hierarchy and in the military I was thought that good leaders must first learn to follow.  But that is not the argument I present in this letter, but in a crafty way I mentioned it anyway.


The question our educational system has to ask and the leadership of today who will design the curriculum for our children in school today is what is the blueprint of the world tomorrow.  What are the types of jobs that will be available and what are the requirements necessary to fill these slots in order to have a strong economy and national security.


We have to address the real world and the real challenge of improvising in terms of making due with what we have.  What do we want our children to do for and in America in 2020 and 2030 and beyond?  I mean is eloquence still the ability to play a violin?  Let us face it music is made mostly on computers, using software programs and electronic instrumentation and more likely the instruments and sounds are virtual and synthesized.


Education should be give and take, meaning I will teach you what you want to learn if you let me teach you what I think you need to learn to support and protect the American way.  First; I say due away with most instruments in the classrooms and teach kids Acid, Reason, Live, Pro Tools, Sonar, Cubase, Sound Forge, Audition and other programs that will be applicable in the real world of music, not only will it attract students back the education empire, but will demonstrate that the education given applies to real world situations and it would create demand for these products as well.


Things like electronic dictionaries and advanced calculators and computers are skills that are much more valuable than short term memory testing.  Our education system is based on short term memory and not on the ability to think improvises and show initiative and these are the qualities in the real world that people look for to pay for the performance of tasks and to have projects being carried out.


I just think education should be fun and not stressful.  The challenge of thinking is a joy to most people when it makes sense to them.  Education should not be confusing but should be step by step arrangements that leads to an understandable and agreed upon goal.  Children should be allowed to go to school to learn what they want to learn if they demonstrate they have the necessary skills and abilities to comprehend the agenda put forth.  We have to implement technology into the classroom and music technology is just an example as to how to get our kids interested in the sciences and arts of the world of tomorrow.  Children will learn what they have to know, even as we teach them what they want to know, this is called making education interesting and applicable.
