has changed in variety of ways throughout history and is constantly evolving in
their many aspects of subjects such as math, science, literature, and
humanities. Everyday new ideas are brainstormed to increase the advancement of
the brain meaning, to think more critically, independently, and profoundly.

There is no right or wrong implication of a “True Education,” there are many
ways to evaluate the point of views of this prompt to better a person’s
learning ability to further their education to become successful. In my opinion
I believe a “True Education” is to gain knowledge of real life situations and
how to become independently successful with skills and criteria you have
experienced personally and professionally. Yes, you should be taught the four
important basic subjects (math, science, literature, and humanities), but I
disagree that this is what a student should only
be taught through K-12 grade. I strongly believe a student should be taught
real life scenarios, such as how to pay taxes, apply for jobs, pay bills, and
how to socially interact.

            My interpretations of Ralph Emerson
educational strategy is taking it step by step creating that practice making a
habit and everyday concept, where the student as well as the teacher learn and
evolve the educational path. As he stated, “when one learns the use of tools,
it is easy to work at a new craft”. Which reinforces my belief that as
important it is to learn the mechanics of the four basic subjects, it becoming
critical to have real life experience that put great value to the core
curriculum we learn in the hall of education, while still allowing us to learn
through trial and error is still our greatest educator. Emerson described the
virtue of been an educator as part of nature bring the true sense within one
soul to touch each and every individual with a thought, creativity, pulsing energy
that borders our society.

            The concept of educating has many
roads and methods; in the story Sedaris the educator as used sarcasms, ridicule
and constant belittling, which was her technique to create concern and
awareness on their education and the importance of properly practicing the
French language in everyday life and not only in class. There are many methods
on how an educator will introduce and create a lesson plan, but with
constructive outcome in this case learning the love of a language understand
the sound of a vowel, and meaning of a word outside our primary language. The
biggest point of his story that make me believe that education is an endless
actions or behaviors regardless of age, educational level the mind and soul can
absorb new ideas, mechanics, and use them in society, while still understanding
that it takes time and effort to build our mechanics when it comes to learning
something new will open our world.

            The civil right movement is an era
in our time that has some great victories, as well as time we are not so proud
in our nation’s actions or practices. James Baldwin talked about practice, the
environment, thoughts and society its self how it affect the educational growth
of a black boy or individual as social experiences were their teacher and
opening their conscious to their true education. We as children truly don’t
understand the full aspect of life and we go through life picking a piece at a
time, as a parent we strive to put a good values into our children and hopefully
raise them to be a productive  part of society.

As Baldwin inference that ” the purpose of education, finally, is to create in
a person the ability to look at the world for himself, to make his own
decision, to say to himself this is black or this is white, to decide for
himself whether there is a god in heaven or not”. Education also comes from
questions, evaluating society and our own environment creating that need for
change and making the decision to challenge it. I think what Baldwin was trying
to get across in this articles was regardless of what society or social
standard you are subject to or born in that we ourselves can decide to accept
or fight for change, creating that need to challenge the stereotyping,
mentalities and overall the society we live in now for us as individuals to
move forward and have a powerful impact on our society.

            To conclude my synthesis essay,
though there are a numerous amount of perspectives on how an education system
should be administered, the main focus of how an education system should be
given is how it is beneficiary to the child. Furthermore, the requirement of
academic classes appointed to each young individual should be established to
teach them real world situations including the four important basic subjects (math,
science, literature, and humanities). Additionally the goal of a “True
Education” should be to expand the child’s intellectual credibility, creativity
and dedication.
