What Kids Should Know by the Time They’re Done With School

The Atlantic – Hayley Glatter, Emily DeRuy, and Alia Wong

“We asked prominent voices in education—from policy makers and teachers to activists and parents—to look beyond laws, politics, and funding and imagine a utopian system of learning. They went back to the drawing board—and the chalkboard—to build an educational Garden of Eden. We’re publishing their answers to one question each day this week. Responses have been lightly edited for clarity and length.”(more)

  1. I think that basic psychology should be included in primary education curriculums. I have seen far too many cases as an ex-Jehovah’s Witness of exceptional talent and ability laid to waste as a result of mind control by religious cults. By teaching psychology with a focus on cult influence children can retain their critical thinking ability and not sacrifice it to religious dogma and absolutism. This would benefit them in other areas of life as well. In high school I tested very high in science and engineering fields and I received a standard IQ test result of 155 but since higher education was discouraged by Jehovah’s Witnesses I spent my life struggling to make a living at occupations that were far below what I was capable of. Far too much time is spent in this country protecting religious freedom and very little is spent analyzing the detrimental effects religious cults can have on children who are raised in them.
