Realize that "education" is like a spider's web. It starts at the center and fans out in numerous directions; each strand is criss-crossing and overlapping the others.
Primary is learning a skill, for globalization has created enormous competition for jobs. But a classroom is also a sterile environment. It is like a bread that fills the stomach but has no taste.
A well-rounded personality includes social skills that cannot be taught in a classroom. That comes from human interaction and life experiences. Increasingly, children are left to themselves to find their way. Uncertain and afraid, they disconnect from reality and turn to electronic devices that only serve to stunt their emotional growth. Or they turn to gangs. It is here that adults must step in and become mentors that provide positive life experiences that enrich a child's life.
I strongly believe in mentoring to children. Mentoring is providing a personal, one-on-one interaction that gives knowledge, wisdom, and skills the child wouldn't find elsewhere.
A rewarding life is about achieving balance and harmony. It's also learning to make choices. The only true curriculum for that is our own experiences, and helping children learn from the mistakes that we've made.
You might start an Adopt-A-Child program where each adult "adopts" a neglected child and provides the child with positive life experiences. This might include trips to the zoo, teaching them to make a dessert, or anything that might be interesting.
