Have arts students visit nursing homes or a suburb contributing a few hours a week teaching painting or music eg. to residents. Also schools K-12. Credit or make part of their degree. This would expand their teaching and social skills.

Expect everybody in our civilised education process of life to push the boundaries and get the best with each other through COLLABORATION instead of competition. Let’s move on from dog eat dog, get to the top of the pile, and lift the landscape of connected thinking together.

Education is the fundamental ingredient for equity and the prevention of poverty. Taking money out of education just ends up with a massively bigger spend later on in health, justice, social services, not to mention the misery that goes with all that. How’s this for something radical – why don’t we just fund it properly?

Prenatal/postnatal +ve experience vs trauma exposure, can determine life outcomes by altering our gene structure. Brains double in size in the first two years. Crucially, health/language/literacy begin in the enabling relationship and secure attachment of baby to parent. But we spend massively more cash after “formation”.

Teach teachers HOW to teach reading. It’s a learned skill not a naturally occurring one.
