Why Leadership in Education is Necessary

Mar 16, 2008
There are essentially three types of education, the public school system, professional education, and leadership in education. Leadership in education is also known as Thomas Jefferson Education.

The public school system was instituted as a way to help educate students whose family couldn't afford to give them any other kind of education. The system was started to produce young people who could receive a diploma and enter the work force.

Today, the public school system isn't just seen as an option: It's seen as a must for American students. Educators who know much about Thomas Jefferson's form of education like to call the public school system "conveyor belt education." In other words, it churns out students as if they were factory products.

Children are all treated the same in the public school system. They all get the same materials at the same age. They get the same indistinguishable tests. There is little or no focus on individual skills or interests.

Most students from this kind of education are great workers, at least. They were pretty much taught what to think.

Another system is professional education, which is not far removed from its public counterpart. Professional schools offer training in specialized fields, such as law, medicine, and business.

Professional schools are better known as trade schools. These schools are very difficult to get into, with only the best students being highly competitive. A student who emerges from this school is a trained specialist who knows when to think.

Leadership in education, or leadership education, is the third form of education. Historically, students of this system went on to become powerful leaders in government. Students from this system also become champions of noble causes, great speakers, and entrepreneurs.

It was Thomas Jefferson's vision to institute a system that would create leaders who would prevent tyranny. But after his educational plan was instituted, it only took a few short years for the government to involve itself in public education.

Jefferson and other leaders like him throughout history were mostly schooled at home. Once they received the foundation skills, they went to quality schools to learn the classics.

Students are inspired to learn when mentors and teachers guide them in their studies. They learn how to think when placed at the feet of the great minds from the classics.
