New Life #614 – A School For Life
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Yael Leshed-Harel.
The educational, military, and medical systems are conservative, they don’t like change; what was, will be.
The school is an institution that began around 150-200 years ago laborers and industrial workers needed to be trained.
I suffered a lot in school during my childhood; eventually I went to study at a night school; I also studied at a university. In the last forty years I have been involved in the investigation of Kabbalah and ontology because it interests me. And I see how our egoism has evolved and we can not sit and study only because we must; it must really interest us.
It is necessary to take children to see a variety of workplaces, creating a real “university of life.” Children should be allowed flexibility and diversity so that they can study what interests them. Studies show that teaching boys and girls together disturbs the children a lot and arouses a great deal of pressure and tension in a class.
Today a school doesn’t build a person and hardly imparts any knowledge. Children are dissatisfied, parents are dissatisfied, teachers are dissatisfied; the system has stagnated. Today the educational system doesn’t educate, it doesn’t build a person, and it doesn’t teach correct relationships between people.
To better prepare our children for life, we must first imagine an optimal life. To do this requires interesting and relevant teachers of life.
