Lately, I’ve been realizing that the letter “E” is the first letter in many of the words that affect us today. The EU which is growing in prominence and power in the world. Energy is of paramount importance and value in today’s economy. Related to Energy, the Environment is of vital concern for our short, medium and long term futures. Education consistently dominates the minds of many of us parents for the future of not only our children, but the intelligence of the masses and our employed. In my pursuit of the ideal curriculum, I’m thinking that “Economics” should be taught more frequently and have higher importance in primary education. Keeping with an economic theme, Emerging markets appear to dominate the International Economy as well having growth rates that are phenomenal compared to the slow rate of the developed countries.
Perhaps the reason why educators skip the letter “E” in our public school grading system and go from C to F is because the letter E was just too important to use?
