What kids should be really learning about in schools

Image by brooks.edu

As schools start back and all the kids are going to their classes the one thing I wish that they would teach is about loving one another and the real truth about what that four letter word means LOVE. Because it seems in this society that word is not being expressed or really described anymore in a lot of classes. This is one word that should be elaborated on the most and I wish more teachers would talk this word from K-6th grade, so the kids would not be easily persuaded by anyone that says they love you only to get you to do something illegal or sexually abuse you.

More teachers should look for students that are impressionable and just someone to help them a long the way with not just their studies but also with their day to day lives. Growing as a kid is way more difficult now then it was in the past. Kids are hit with way more stuff then I was at their age and it is more in your face now and sugar coded at all.

There is more temptations in school that kids face at a younger age like at 10 or 11 years old, they are being pressured to smoke, drink, and even have sex from some of there so-called friends. And this is not surprising but kids are now having to watch out for teachers that are supposed to be teaching them. It also amazing how some these legislators in the senate are talking about taking things out of the history books that are pertinent information and very important historical landmarks to learn from like slavery, Abraham Lincoln and 13th Amendment, and also what happened here in America decades ago which is called racism.

They say by taking these important views information it will make other kids not fill bad for being who they are as white people. But I beg to differ and they need to know the truth so that they understand the history about this corrupt and screwed up country. And so how they can be the next generation that fixes the problem and be the solution that people see.

This is what I call really educating someone in order to see change in America. 2pac said it like this, "I wish they would young teens about real stuff like go in depth with sex education and how to be healthy and wearing condoms. Instead, they are more focused on gym practices or sports." This is gaining more of educators attention then what really matters in school. Which is getting them prepared for life and helping them out with finding the truth about what they truly dream of doing in the college and after college.

There also needs to more emphasis being put on really watching out for the kids and not just letting them go anywhere they want. Because there is an epidemic on kids being taken and sold into child sex trafficking here in Oklahoma. It is done on the low so nobody knows who is really doing it, but I have heard and watched on the news broadcasting about either 3 or 4 girls going missing and never returning back to their parents. And this has been happening way too much in America.

My only question I have for all these new educators that are coming in is are you all really to teach and help reach this new generation of kids? Or is this another job for you to get a quick paycheck and not care for the kids that are suffering behind close doors?
