Alternative kids school syllabus

@Mitochondrial Eve gave me this idea since she mentioned of Hope school in Essex.

 

While I think physical school is important, let's build our ideal school right here. Obviously, no pupils but teachers, submit your expertie idea.😛

The subject will includes practical things that were not taught in the conventional schools but useful.

It will cost nothing because we are just putting some ideas together and who knows....may be we will have a metaverse school where home schooled kids could attend a module or course distantly.

 

While cooking, carpentry, painting & decorating, gardening are essential, I also suggest that someone teaches nutritional course as well. This will naturally link to practical chemistry, biology. We will keep maths to minimum. 😁 If anyone think learning trigonometry is necessary, they can send their kids to the converyor belt school. tbh, I've never had a need to use one.

 

As for art, let them teach about sacred geometry (well this does bridge over to math a bit), how to draw, let them find it in nature, make a collage of it and teach its meanings.

 

Money & finance - ask pupils how they might want to earn a living..... If they say they want to be a policeman or teacher, let them find out the average salary and compare it with living expense and see if they can make it. 😁 If they find out the reality of it, theyy might change their mind and choose something else.

 

I wish all the best to the founders of HopeEssex. If we can help them even distantly and make them successful, we can copy their blueprint all over the country.

 

Along with yoga (PE), teach them about vibration. How to sense energy and all that stuff.

 

I'd say so far as...let children take in turn to do classroom cleaning.

I did. They will learn to respect the room and will not cause mess.

There is already a sign to say bright children are born. Just heard a 3/4-year old knowing how to do dragon mudra. Her parent asked how she knew and she said a 'god' taught her while waiting to come into this world. 🤨

 

But I've also heard another baby doing a mudra while back.

You need basic trig if you ever want to make a right angle (or any other angle) - fits in with brickwork and woodwork - or cross a river using an A-frame, estimate height of a structure or area of a field,  etc.

Well obviously I just cross a river by walking on a bridge so never had to use an A-frame.....

As I said, if any kids want to be an architect, a surgeon, a chemist they will need to be educated by them but most will not need it and if you ever need to use it, there is your internet. If you teach HOW TO DO A RESEARCH, then that can be applied to any subject.

If the internet is available; if all that tech is available. Much easier just to *know* you can make a right angle by tying knots in a piece of string (3,4,5 or 5,12,13) without having to even think about it - so you need to learn it at primary school age, not when you are old enough to know what sort of job you want. Like being able to identify edible plants, tie several types of knot, boil an egg and knowing that (here) moss is more likely to grow on the north of a tree. Things I was taught at school, but which the "look it up on the web" culture just seems to ignore. Research involves reading books and talking to people (not censored web searches) - also ignored these days, it seems. Bah, humbug!

My granddaughters are amazed at stuff I just 'know' and don't have to Google, but I'm nobody special, just an ordinary guy.

 

I really fear for them once this fucking 'Reset' takes hold.

Hope Sussex seems to be gaining increasing attention within alternative circles all over the world.

 

Here is an interview with Sadie, one of the tutors and founders, at the Brighton Freedom rally held at the weekend. She tells us about the really diverse subject matters on offer for their children including maths, English, art, drama, dance, PE, trade skills, welding, box cart building and shamanic classes, and how they cater for all age groups. They hope that further education centres can be rolled out in all counties to help teach children a different way of living distinct from the mainstream.

This isn't a criticism, just an observation.  For me persoanlly I don't think Shamanism is a necessary part of the

curriculum for children, but back to practical skills is wonderful.

 

I came across this in the Fail the other day. I think they are ramping up the fear again with an exaggerated article.

 

I woud imagine thousands of parents are considering alternative schooling for their children since Covid.

I would agree with you that "shamanic classes", whatever that entails, are not necessary and that practical matters should be a higher priority in terms of building life skills.

 

Thanks for the Daily Fail article. That reminds me of Katy-Jo Mirfin's chat with Michael Chaves / Mad Mix about Hope Sussex as she mentions that they had received a visit from Ofsted. Here is the video - it is around timestamp 3:20 that she refers to the visit and it seems that there may have been some concern about the condition of the site which prompted the drive to get people in to help renovate it.

I think if there could be a centre running a rotating after school alternative classes or even weekend etc....then that will give parents some breathing space as well.

Kids tend to go to martial arts, ballet or piano/violin, football and other sports but that seems to be it.

Good to have carpentry skills, cooking skills etc. I reckon kids can even put together a computer....it's dead easy..... mind you I've been meaning to get into Raspbery pi but haven't got around doing it. May be there could also be a workshop for both parents and kids to work so that all can be taught together.....like the Common Law.

Parents, check out right brain education.

Apparently, they do things like a flash card counting, one containing 97 dots and the other with 99 dots. Flash them for a second and ask the kids which card contained 99 dots. The right brain counts quickly and translate/print out as 99 and they'll be able to answer instantly. By doing these kind of exercises, they can activate the right brain. There was an example a kid was given a thick foreign book and he/she was able to feel the book and tell what's writtein in which page etc.... Another boy was able to slow down 1 second into 10 second (in his brain processing) so that when he is performing fast moving sports, he is able to get a better control of situation.

I guess this is similar to how your brain translate time in time of crisis/accident where everything seems to move in slow motion but he can do it at will.

 

Here is something to get started.

https://www.rightbraineducationlibrary.com/post/2018/01/15/shichida-method-vs-heguru-vs-glenn-doman-method

 

I use my right brain to check if a shop has something in stock before I go so that I don't have to waste a journey or decide to visit another branch/shop.

Of course, I could ring and find out but I'm only shopping at Tesco..... lol

There is no one way of doing this. You could either check using energy, like bats send out their soner/ultrasonic(?) waves or do remote viewing. Jus saying.

If you are in contact with some of these people Eve, I think Bjorn is a wonderful inspiration. They may already know

about him x

Although I am not directly involved, there are ways I could get in touch with some of the people connected to Hope Sussex.

 

I am not in a position to watch the video at the moment, but I will take a look when I can and see if I can send it their way.
