    are complex and that is true No single law no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society but that can t be an excuse for inaction Surely we can do better than this As the representative of a not for profit organization I must walk a fine line when it comes to advocating for specific policy change but I think I occupy safe territory when I echo that simple statement Surely we can do better than this This will not be a task left to legislators and law enforcement officers Many pundits have rightfully pointed to the mental health component of most mass shootings and the obvious gaps in our social safety net The sad reality is that funding for and access to quality mental health services is diminishing across the country particularly in schools where resources are stretched thin Surely we can do better than this At the Newtown prayer vigil President Obama also said We can t tolerate this anymore These tragedies must end And to end them he stressed we must change And this change I humbly submit is where the rubber meets the road I hail from rural North Carolina and I am constantly reminded by folks back home that not everyone in America thinks the way we do around here in my little corner of Los Angeles Change is going to be harder for some than it will be for others While I am admittedly not a gun enthusiast I do understand the patriot s passionate defense of the second amendment What I can t understand however is why anyone thinks that this law was ever intended to extend the right to possess weapons of war capable of such massacre I sincerely doubt that gangland warfare was what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they put forth the idea of a well regulated militia Surely we can do better than this And to change we must never forget what tragedies have come before Some would say the USA is justifiably referred to as the United States of Amnesia Any second now the 24 7 news cycle will relegate this tragedy to the back burner along with TMZ s B list celebrity scandals The political will shall evaporate Once McDonald s re re introduces the McRib and the new season of American Idol launches the Sandy Hook school shooting will be little more than a tragic footnote to 2012 Bread and circuses Surely we can do better than this At the press conference announcing the gun violence task force the President said that If we re going to change things it s going to take a wave of Americans standing up and saying enough on behalf of our kids That wave is going to have to consist of more than just those of us working in social welfare organizations More than teachers More even than parents aunts uncles and grandparents At the prayer

  • Have an Ecoliterate Year! | Wildwoods Foundation
    pre determined purpose rather than the student determining the meaning of one s education for one s self But back to Deresiewicz s complaint If as he claims youth are now simply preliminary adults even though since the Romantic period youth was understood to have a special role to step outside of the world and question it young people are no longer given the opportunity to question and reflect then that means the job of questioning is going undone Students are no longer encouraged to question the status quo they are simply tasked with finding how they fit in The societal downside as Deresiewicz sees it is far greater than fewer poets and artists the biggest challenges we face climate change resource depletion the disappearance of work in the face of automation will require nothing less than fundamental change a new organization of society If there was ever a time that we needed young people to imagine a different world that time is now The alarm that Deresiewicz raises is a familiar one particularly for those of us that view the world through the lens of ecoliteracy In the coming decades the survival of humanity will depend on our ecological literacy our ability to understand the basic principles of ecology and to live accordingly This means that ecological literacy must become a critical skill for politicians business leaders and professionals in all spheres and should be the most important part of education at all levels from primary and secondary schools to colleges universities and the continuing education and training of professionals emphasis mine Fritjof Capra 2008 Sounds like fundamental change to me Ultimately though Deresiewicz s prescription for what ails us is one of social engineering Instead of treating higher education as a commodity we need to treat it as a right While I might agree with him I believe that breaking away from a strictly market based philosophy of education is only part of the challenge and the more urgent need is to drastically change the perspective with which all education is conducted as succinctly posed by Oberlin College professor David Orr All education is environmental education By what we include or exclude we teach the young that they are part of or apart from the natural world An economist for example who fails to connect our economic life with that of ecosystems and the biosphere has taught an environmental lesson all right but one that is dead wrong Our goal as educators ought to be to help students understand their implicatedness in the world and to honor mystery Or in the jargon of the time to connect the dots to see systems and patterns In other words education should include consideration of context The entirety of human culture and knowledge takes place within the natural environment in which we exist Therefore it makes sense to consider the connections to the natural world when we teach any given subject Sidebar Setting the valid concerns about Common Core aside I

    all of our programs are built around our philosophy of Building Community by Exploring Nature The intent of our programs is that participants learn a lesson of nature that they can apply in a social context in their everyday lives in school at home and in their neighborhood Or as we like to say It s less learning about nature and more learning from nature Our programs take place all over the Los Angeles region in schools and in parks The flexible schedule makes this position attractive for someone with a passion for the work and occasional time on their hands graduate students substitute teachers camp leaders or park guides If this sounds like you please check out the job description and let us hear from you Tagged Share This Story Related Posts Attention Soda drinkers We need your empty 2 liter bottles 30 Apr 2016 0 Attention Soda drinkers We need your empty 2 liter bottles We Can Do Better 03 Oct 2015 0 We Can Do Better Wildwoods at City Hall 24 Jun 2015 0 Wildwoods at City Hall No Comment You can post first response comment Leave A Comment Click here to cancel reply Name required Email required Website Comment Featured Recent Posts The Impact of Full Circle on Science Education Attention Soda drinkers We need your empty 2 liter bottles 6th Annual Wildwoods Wine Tasting A Drop in the Bucket Year One Wildwoods Halloween Beer Bus We Can Do Better Have an Ecoliterate Year Wildwoods is Hiring Categories California Schools Community Engagement Ecoliteracy Environmental Education Los Angeles Public Schools Oakgrove Oakgrove Scrapbook Outreach Science Education Service Projects Special Events Sponsors Supporters STEM Stop violence Teacher Education Uncategorized Violence Prevention Volunteers Twitter Facebook Wildwoods Foundation Attn Soda Drinkers We need 6 hours ago So it s come
