The Goals of Education is the first course in a series of 10, designed to profoundly improve the goals and methods of education used by a parent who is homeschooling, or a teacher or a tutor in a homeschool or school environment. This course is a prerequisite for the rest of this program.
This is a course NOT for the student. It is strictly for the parent, teacher or tutor working in a homeschool or school situation.
This course requires the book Poor Cheated Little Johnny also available on this site and cannot be done without it.
The course is 15 lesson plans long, and should take between 8-30 hours to do, depending on the student.
The course helps the teacher develop his or her own ideas about the goals of education, as well as helping the teacher to ascertain the educational goals of their student, their student's parents, and the state. The course then assists the teacher in finding ways to bring these goals together, always treating the student's goals as the consideration, in order to best serve the student, but with the least resistance. This fine balancing act is an art unto itself, and it is critical that the teacher succeed at it, for the sake of the student.
The student's goals are senior because education is for, and belongs to, the student. The student will need to live with the results of his education for the rest of his life. It will largely dictate whether or not the student will have a life he can be proud of and enjoy, or not. A great teacher understands this. You'll know a lot more about how to accomplish this once you do this course!
