Basic education: There are twelve Rs not the traditional three
Can any of the following be left out of basic education?
Reading, wRiting, aRithmetic
Relationships, Reasoning, Remembering
Reviewing, Responsibility, Reflecting
Researching, Reporting, Resolve
This list is a template for schools to teach, businesses to recruit and carers to watch. (eg I'd better remind old Mrs. Jones that today's the day of her doctor's appointment as she's not good at remembering things.)
Although all these are essential life-skills, curricula don't work along these lines. I suggest they ought to.
This isn't a complete education, see the 12 Maturities.
My idea is that a group of people would easily be able to complete a comprehensive guide to the 12Rs.
See http://vulpeculox.net/12/index.htm for a fuller description and suggested team effort.
