Celebrating Cognitive Diversity: A Student’s Interpretation
Nikki Kragt “I wish my education would be more intuitive with more opportunities than is really being presented to me. There are many things people can do to improve education. Education, in my opinion, is suffering at the moment and in need of improvements. I think the best ways to do this is to learn languages at an early age, start fundamentals sooner, and study the arts early in life.”
Alia Cecil Touch Knowledge
I wish we could touch and talk to knowledge,Feel electric charges,See the Nile River,Slip our toes beneath the water,Hear the heartbeat of life.
I wish we could travel through the world,Learning first hand about towns and cities and countries,From the people who live there,We would glance up from the words and pages of books,And discover life in our own way.
I wish we could step outside the classroom,Beyond these plane white walls,Paint life with color,And feel the rhythm of the world,Know the hurt of other nations,And strive to heal them.
I wish we could learn from doing,Like baby birds that fly from a nest,Sometimes we would fall,But our teacher and friends would be there to help us back up.One day we would find the wind to carry us,And we would soar.We would have a better understanding of the world,So we could fly above the clouds,And there would be so many paths to followWe would have the knowledge to choose which one was right.
