Where are we going? What do you feel is the biggest issue Alaska faces. Me personally i believe that the education system is the basis of all of our issues and the source of our solutions. </p> Anonymous on "The No Child Left Behind Act" http://youngalaskans.org/discussion/topic.php?id=102#post-287 Tue, 30 Sep 2008 18:50:19 +0000 Anonymous 287@http://youngalaskans.org/discussion/ <p>The no child left behind act, as noble as its intent, is nothing more then a socialistic policy that is quelling the flowing potential of today's youth. This policy is the most un-american concept that could be put into action. Instead of promoting individuality and the expansion of ones own potential it calls for the communistic principals of uniformity. I have my opinion on this act, but i would like to hear the opinions of others. </p> <div id='error'> <p class='bbdberror'><strong>bbPress database error:</strong> [Table 'young_alaskans.wp_users' doesn't exist]<br /> <code>SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = 70</code></p> </div>Anonymous on "Some things we will have to think about with the subject of education." http://youngalaskans.org/discussion/topic.php?id=72#post-208 Wed, 17 Sep 2008 01:17:20 +0000 Anonymous 208@http://youngalaskans.org/discussion/ <p>One thing that is true with education is that it is the most important thing in our lives. If we don't learn, we won't grow. Like #5 in "Short Circuit", the movie, we "NEED INPUT!" But as we learn, we see that people are very, very different. We see this first in the family, and then in the rest of the world. Because we see that everybody is different, at first we become overwhelmed about what we can contribute, because there is probably someone somewhere that is five times better than you at doing the thing you may want to contribute. So why contribute at all? </p> <p>Because you may have learned about other people, but you have not learned about yourself. </p> <p>If we don't know ourselves, then of course we will feel helpless when viewing the rest of the world, because we will see ourselves as huge, big unknowns. We don't know if we might be good at something if we never saw what we can do. And understanding something and doing something are different things. You can do something without understanding it, but if you understand it, you might not be the person doing it. </p> <p>So, it is actually more important to help children realize what they can do, instead of filling their minds up with facts. They need to learn about themselves, or else they won't make a contribution in this world. And I don't mean that they learn what it means to be Native, or what it means to be Inupiat or Athabascan or anything like that. I mean what it is like to be them, in all their uniqueness and humanity. They must understand themselves, or they will not feel empowered to understand the world. </p> <p>I was lucky. In my religion, the Baha'i Faith, the founder of it, Baha'u'llah, wrote once that "to know God is to know yourself". So it was ingrained into me that I had to understand what I felt, that I had to understand how I worked. And now, I do feel empowered to make a difference. This is one example of what I was talking about.</p> <p>If this concept was applied to the field of education, coupled with learning the necessary facts (we can never avoid them, and we do a good job with rote education anyway), I can honestly predict an upsurge in inspired, educated youth and young adults that will make a difference in this world. Alaska is a unique place in this aspect because we do show a mutual respect, in general, for more people than we realize. This leads to a realization that we all are unique, and thus leads, one way or another, to a realization of one's own uniqueness. It is a very special thing for me to see, especially if it is in action. </p> <p>What do you think? </p> <div id='error'> <p class='bbdberror'><strong>bbPress database error:</strong> [Table 'young_alaskans.wp_users' doesn't exist]<br /> <code>SELECT * FROM wp_users WHERE ID = 12</code></p> </div>Anonymous on "If you were President for a year..." http://youngalaskans.org/discussion/topic.php?id=84#post-247 Sat, 20 Sep 2008 20:29:33 +0000 Anonymous 247@http://youngalaskans.org/discussion/ <p>If you got to be President for a year, what would you do with your new leadership position? </p> Anonymous on "Who is a leader you admire?" http://youngalaskans.org/discussion/topic.php?id=40#post-146 Thu, 21 Aug 2008 09:06:28 +0000 Anonymous 146@http://youngalaskans.org/discussion/ <p>This started off as a test post but now I'm really curious what people think about the question.
