One of the problems with our current education system is that it is missing the foundation of the Trivium. More near and dear to me then this is the Quadrivium.
"The Quadrivium (plural: quadrivia) are the four subjects, or arts, taught after teaching the trivium. The word is Latin, meaning "the four ways" (or a "place where four roads meet"), and its use for the four subjects has been attributed to Boethius or Cassiodorus in the 6th century. Together, the trivium and the quadrivium comprised the seven liberal arts (based on thinking skills), as opposed to the practical arts (such as medicine and architecture). The quadrivium consisted of arithmetic, geometry, music, and astronomy. These followed the preparatory work of the trivium made up of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. In turn, the quadrivium was considered preparatory work for the serious study of philosophy (sometimes called the "liberal art par excellence")and theology. The word "trivia" has been rarely used to refer to the trivium. " -wikipedia
How can we advance beyond these if we can't even provide everyone the most basic of education? When I was a teenager I saw the world as sheep, and I felt hate, then got a little older and I felt pity and then indifference during some dark times. Now rather then have an emotional reaction, I think, how can I change this? What affect can I have? That is the mission that I am on in life. To advance my own knowledge and to offer clues that might entice those who are curious to question everything and think for themselves.
