Education is Important

Think Big Picture:

Today's children are tomorrow's leaders.  Do you want to live in a prosperous society tomorrow?  Then it follows that the upbringing of today's youth will need to be of a good quality.

Theodore Roosevelt once said:

"The stream will not permanently rise higher than the main source; and the main source of national power and national greatness is found in the average citizenship of the nation."

Today, schools are teaching children to become reliant on technology.  In our school district, kindergarteners are given chrome books - this is wrong.  Overreliance on technology weakens the mind and stunts creativity.  We have to enable our children to use technology as a tool only, with the mind of the person as the driving force.

This requires the individual to be able to think for his/herself.  This cannot be done unless the person can read well and write.  Processing mathematics (think: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and thinking logically are also very important.

At Lancaster County School District, we will Lead the Way in bringing education back to what it should be.

With a focus on the fundamentals.  Empower our children's minds and only after that, use technology as a tool to aid them in their creative process.  But the creative process is not enough if it isn't guided by the most basic morality.
