I learned at an early age from my mother that there was more to school than reading, writing, arithmetic and lunch. She was a teacher. I was an eager student of the academic sort. That didn't impress her. She told me later it was clear I was ready to

Alot of ethics need to be taught in school, our kids are getting no discipline today, no moral science at all.

Only mass distribution of this list is likely to have much effect. Ask again and again and again.

Great list from organization to thinking critically. The photo is a bit off, since many of the goals won't be learned in the very best nursery school.

I don't see the visual arts listed anywhere on this list. Statistically music has been found to improve math skills, so that's probably on the list to support the sciences. The arts continue to be relegated as subjects of secondary importance to "real" courses of study. Personally, I wonder what people would think if I said, I don't think every child needs to learn how to do equations, but being exposed to number systems is like learning a new language and begins to empower children to learn on their own. I hardly think a child would be considered empowered in the long run if they were only exposed to mathematics and never required to participate. The same stands true for the disciplines of music and art.
