Universal Business Education

As the last in our series about the sound of Pentecost, and preparatory to our series on what to teach your children about money, we consider the suggestion for universal business education — something that American public education seems to have always been allergic to. Strange for the most capitalistic society? First, can we still claim that? Likely not. However, public school was originally designed to make train factory workers out of immigrants. More recently, it was designed to make useful idiots. (Documentation later, if you like.) For now, let’s think what it might be like to teach children about business principles.

Call to Arms to Parents 1

I preached a series from 2 Timothy about children and youth in modern times. Folks, this is a word from the Lord! It is straight out of the Bible. It was illuminated to me for you.

Surely, this is more visible after the events of past weeks?

We need to invest in patiently teaching our children.

Full series is available at in the “store.”

We can’t be sure that there will be any of those books left. My librarian and preschool director friends have probably already snapped them up. So go right now.

All of the books are inexpensive for what they are and the 25% discount is great by itself. Be sure to peruse the whole website. You will find some free things.

In this episode, Mr. Sommer let out that he writes even more than is on Advance Publishing specializes in character building books, in a variety of languages, that teach character principles and are acceptable to public schools in the USA. But there is more. He is part of a project that teaches math. He provides the practical lessons, so students understand that math really is needed in the real world.
