Educate children ...

2,500 years after Confucius, time is running much faster as nearly everybody is telling us on a daily basis, but the quote is still valid. Possibly we can reduce the 100 years to 50 or even 25 in the meantime?

No doubt, education for children as well as lifelong learning is a key for success in 2019. A lot did change since I finished my school time and studies afterwards. I am just seeing this with my two daughters, who are in front of finishing their current phase in school. The middle one will start with the final exams right after the Easter holidays and the younger one will finish 10th grade in early summer time.

At work I am looking after three Interns and there I can see all the changes with the new Bachelor and Master course of studies. Much more practical and with early connections to companies, but I think they are learning the real work life and ways of working much faster due to this.

So let's get our kids the best possible education based on their capabilities and not only the money of their parents. The community has to make the money available that is necessary to  reasonably challenge and promote the future generations. Just do it ...

Some examples, where this could lead to and some supporting material, independent from the age 😉:

When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. Confucius, Chinese - Philosopher 551 BC - 479 BC
