Neither pedagogical concepts nor didactic methods are the most important aspects in creating a new education system.
If we are interested in something, we will learn it by heart in a very short time. Then it's not work, but fun. It's like a well-prepared, fragrant meal that's a joy to eat.
In today's education systems, teaching with an individual approach is practically impossible, mainly due to high system requirements, schedules, tests and other requirements such as homework.
The creation of an education system that takes individual needs into account is strictly limited by the curriculum.
The basic questions we need to ask ourselves are:
What do we really want for our children? What do we want for our company? What future would we like to have? And we should definitely ask our children as well. If we start listening to their opinions carefully, we will often be very surprised.
Today, information is much more accessible to everyone than ever before in history. In a dynamically changing global society, being able to filter and structure information has become more important than just remembering it.
Following a rigorous curriculum, which should include all important general knowledge, has become meaningless.
We believe that there is only some basic knowledge and skills that you really need to know.
Reading and writing, mathematics, physics and chemistry, history and culture, are just such pillars. However, it is very important to work on them gradually, with regard to the individual needs and settings of each individual, and especially so that they follow each other logically and beautifully.
And on this foundation, then further develop and expand knowledge and skills in any direction.
"The most important aspect is the values that we, as individuals and as part of society, want to pass on to our children."
In order to find a consensus on a new education system, we must find values that are fundamental to our future society.
The current system, as we know it, supports values that are not ideal.
Emphasizes high performance, competition instead of cooperation. Stress as a way to success. It is more important to have better grades than others in order to gain a better position, rather than cooperation.
Each of us has gone through this system and most of us have found a way to deal with it. And, of course, some have managed to reach high positions, no matter how problematic the school system.
The question is what would these people achieve in an education system that supports their individual potential. A system that would help everyone find the best version of themselves. Which would lead to cooperation and friendship.
We, as parents and teachers and creators of the new education system, would like to see children grow into: free, happy, healthy, creative, responsible, curious, independent, loved and courageous human beings.
"Everyone is a teacher, everyone is a student, all the time."
