Education informs… individuals decide.

Notwithstanding the necessity and correctness of fixing and improving all aspects of the educational system, ultimately it is the “passenger or receiver” that must overcome all faced challenges so as to translate one’s experiences into something useful and lasting…or not.
Few things are definitive or everlasting save for our individual decisions to accept them as so.
Life (in its entirety) is for learning and the educational system an important component meant only to give us a formal foundation; to teach us the fundamentals of “flight”. It is up to each one of us to receive these lessons, practice and learn well or not… then to desire and have the courage to cut-open a window through the wall of our individual limitations through which we may take these learned basics and adapt them to create our individual lifelong learning choices and paths.
I believe it is impossible to over-emphasize the bearing and importance that “family” has on any discussion about formation, learning and passion, but equally, should we not disregard that it is the SELF…the individual that ultimately determines how to collate and weave their past and present experiences into a useful life in an ever evolving spiral.
