What if?

What if each student understood that they matter – that their life is on purpose to give to this world? What if we could build a leadership academy in every classroom? What if the atmosphere in the classroom made morality and compassion easy choices? What if we offered the best speakers not just to the privileged, but to everyone?

Thanks to the internet, we have access to all the greatest thinkers of our time. We CAN build strong, emotionally intelligent leaders ready to contribute to our world.

Personal wholeness trumps everything else in the classroom. It is not just the missing piece in education, it is the fuel for learning. How can we expect anyone to learn about Biology when they don't know what to do with their pain? We can no longer fail to equip our children in ALL aspects of life, especially when it is so easy to access.
