Let’s Abandon Convenient Teaching

Curating Thoughts

In an age of instant gratification
we preach to teach patience
wait your turn, look around
share with a friend, don’t be so wound

In the same vein, we practice
go fetch it all, because, why not
it’s a competitive world, win the first prize
second just won’t suffice

this constant conflict we put them through
is cross pollination & convenient teaching, in my view

Choose a path
Sprint or marathon
if you pick the latter,
then a second or last will more than suffice
for, so much more is building inside
much more than what meets the eye
so much more than what can be quantified.

Thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.

    Great poetry. Yes, perseverance furthers, not convenience. ‘De-schooling Society’ by Ivan Illich, might be found interesting on the subject; for rote and regurgitation of memorized info. can never replace fostering curiosity, natural learning- which becomes lifelong learning, i.m.h.o.. Also, schools underfunding requirements determine, what kids already know, naturally, is drilled out of them; negatively effecting their school experiences and accomplishments- the Montessori teaching methods come to mind. Thanx for all you do; have a good eve’ 🙂 reality
