The time to truly educate has come. Outdated schooling practices and methods inherited from a past era must be replaced by new ones that place the individual at the center of all learning. This audiobook addresses how true education has the power to redirect the course of humanity - one person at a time - and begins by differentiating education from other terms that are used synonymously. Words matter!
By creating humanizing environments, true education can help alleviate common symptoms such as bullying and the dropout rate due to the confiscation of autonomy and the existing disrespect of personal integrity. Nourishing learning environments can also contribute to building healthy self-esteem, to actualizing human potential, and to expanding consciousness.
Education must forcibly involve all young people’s human dimensions - physical, social, mental, emotional, and spiritual - which is certainly not the case in today’s world where curiosity and creativity are extinguished within a constant teach-to-the-test, competitive, and stressful environment.
Pierre Demers presents a vision of what can be our path to making this world a better place. Instead of following the common tendency to try to improve school systems, this audiobook targets the reinvention of our ways of living in society.
