Getting The Most From Our Education
My goodness Captain, you ask some hard questions! I think some of the
responsibility could fall into the family's lap. Are people helping their kids
with their homework? Are we checking to see if there is anything we can do to
help? Are we praising thier accomplishments, and encouraging them, instead of
critizing. Do we still check to see who their friends are? These were some of
the things my parents did. As with most parents they made mistakes, as did I,
but they did their best. And I did my best to make amends to them when I drifted.
I think, I know I could have done better in school, I'm not sure if my study
habits would change today. (one of the reasons I'm alittle reluctant to go back
to college) But the values I learned young seem to be the ones that stick. And I
feel the worst when I fall short of keeping them. That doesn't mean that the new
values I'm learning aren't just as important, it just seems like it takes longer
for me to incorperate them in my daily life. But, just like everything else, it
takes alot of practise to get things right. Maybe we do need to do more to
create civic pride, do have something that people can say, "I'm involved with
this". For me everytime I check out and explore something new I always learn
something. And whenever I reach out and help someone, I fell good. It was great
to see the students of General Brown help out in the community with the
Thanksgiving dinner for the seniors (I know there was another school that helped
out too, I forgot who, if someone else remembers, please jump in and add their
thanks to the list). If we want our kids to be less self-centered, we have to
show them the example. If they don't follow, it won't be from lack of exposure.
This is a transient world nowadays. The kids that grow up and get educated here
might go away. If we give the best education we can to the kids, then when they
say - I was educated in the North Country, they can say it with pride, not as an
excuse. It's not easy. But if one person gets an idea, from something as simple
as a question on a discussion page, to go out and do something for the community,
for education, for the youth of the community, then that's a start. And a good
