The conditions of the capitalist world force American society to chase high rewards and leap over material obstacles. Under these conditions, it is difficult to determine the truth and choose one’s path to growth. Nevertheless, one must understand that development is embedded in children and their capabilities in the first stages. I think Kristof’s text is an excellent example of how investing in children and their future is the best way to develop a country.
Learning is a necessary process that gives people opportunities to grow culturally and socially. In my opinion, building connections in society and communication are essential human qualities. Children should learn these principles in kindergarten and junior school and use them effectively in high school. It is on the person who is aware of the values of culture and communication that one can set expectations for his personal development and general development. However, it is not always possible for the state to provide for the future of children, which is the main problem of the capitalist world.
We should change the approach to education and strive to make it accessible. There have been many tests in my schooling, but they seem too wrong. In my opinion, we need to start changing from the first steps and develop abstract and critical thinking. The ability to analyze and look for the answer is the main qualities that will allow you to become part of society and make a difference. I think revising our education system is essential for America. It is a rich country, and its resources should be devoted to investing in the future, not in a political arms race. I think the state has a responsibility for the future and better take it seriously.
