It takes a village to educate a child
It takes a village to educate a child and yet…. if she is to become a citizen of the world she must be encouraged to to look wider than her just own community.
However, to take her away from all she can learn from her neighbours, community and even family, is to allow her no time to grow roots. Or, even worse, it wrenches at her roots just as they are developing.
For this reason local schools, community schools are the strongest foundation of a global education system.
Beware of all who deride local schools, community and comprehensive education and those who rename schools, or want them to be like others miles away. They are making excuses prior to leaving their community, their roots and seeking to join some elite, somewhere else.
