An idea worth spreading

Kids need to know what is out there and they can decide if they want to learn about it or not. the kids have to decide if that is their path or not. the schools should be full of good teachers and many psychologists who can mentor the kids and test them to check their aptitudes and put in front of them the various paths available and let them choose.

I'm passionate about

Education and how kids should learn, and what they could learn. i have a research project running for my PHD to prove that liberality in education is a good thing, and that kids should choose

Universities

Univresity of Auckland

Talk to me about

my idea is worth spreading, the world need real people who really have interest in saving the children and letting them know what is out there. the kids are little human beings and should have rights

People don't know I'm good at

Really good at writing, and at pushing people to do what is best for them without malice, without thinking of benefiting out of them. of course i have to live too, 4 hours a day is used for charity

My TED story

do not have a story, however i am sad that i can provide so much to society, and at 55 still i am not able to spread my ideas.

Amanda Palmer: The art of asking
I did say the talk is inspirational and we all must learn, i only criticized one thing. some people stick to the negative side of every comment (of course that includes me). also we are educating the world, we must find ingenious ways rather than ways that anyone can think off.

Human rights world-wide
I don't have any idea on how to make the world a just place. I am merely putting forward the idea, and we all need to find out ways to combat the deficiency and put it right.

Human rights world-wide
There is saying in Arabic which could translate literally to "those who do not have will not give", so those that live in places where human basic rights are provided, may not believe or even perceive that some countries deny basic rights to its people. Of course I don't mean here that its only governments that need to respect human rights, iI mean any one of us should respect human rights. The right to eat, drink, speak, earn, work, learn, good health, have water and electricity, and so one are not provided in certain areas and certain countries. Why should people in India for example live in the slumps, and why people in Africa suffer from aids? when natural resources are plenty, and are taken by a few in those countries. Why countries that have oil also have poor people? mal distribution of wealth is the main reason for denying human rights.
