I agree with James Baldwin because he gives lots of good reason of what is education and what education should need to be. For example he said we could look at the world for our self when we are educate. Also make our own decision and said what we feel or think about the thing that are going around us. Education is the things that make our dream come true and if we want to be something in our future than we need education to continue my dream. We also need education to become an independent our self.
The key claims that Horace Mann develops in Report No. 12 includes, most importantly, the idea that the single most important characteristic of any successful society is the common education of its students. Mann maintains that students need to be well educated to even the playing field between rich and poor to create a better future. He also supports the idea that education is essential to a Republican society to be prosperous. When Mann is education the reader on the importance of educating the youth, he draws on the idea that education takes in the children as “raw material” and turns them into productive members of society using education. Mann stresses that schools are the most effective of all forces in civilization, mostly because it so strongly influences all of the other forces.
She then continues, “a benevolent person must often aim at the good of others and call it ‘a good thing’” (48). This provides an adequate definition of what a benevolent person is. She then continues “This, then, seems to be the way in which seeing states of affairs in which people are happy as good states of affairs really is an essential part of morality” (48), arguing that it must be part of morality to try to have people happy. She then draws an important distinction between having benevolence as an essential part of morality, and having it as the end of morality. “But it is very important that we have found this end within morality, and forming part of it, not standing outside it as the ‘good state of affairs’ by which moral action in general is to be judged.”
His ideas about virtue and self-improvement reflect rationalist beliefs. In The Autobiography of Ben Franklin, he made it clear to us that his experiment he conducted was a learning experience for himself. He made a list of virtues that he wanted to teach himself to conform to. As Franklin said in his biography, “My intention is being to acquire the habitude of all these virtues, I judged it would be well not to distract my attention by attempting the whole at once, but to fix it on one of them at a time, and, when I should be master of that, then to
He always had some resolves like this or something. Do you notice what he’s got about improving his mind?...’” (Gatsby, 181-182). In this passage, Nick acquires new information about Gatsby after talking with Mr. Gatz. Nick realizes how hard Gatsby worked to change his old self and shape it into another form in which Daisy would approve of.
Jack Welch’s standards of a good leader do cover the bases of the HEAD, HEART, and FEET analogy. His epitomes were that a leader should have positive energy, passion, and integrity, which all fall under the HEART part of the analogy. He looks for the ability to execute plans and skill to energize others to do more, which fall under the FEET category of the analogy. He also believes a leader should be intelligent. Not just book smart but, intelligence with a strong emotional component.
Martin Luther King Jr was an incredible man who thought education was the best for people. He believes that they should get something great out of education. He wants to fight for the rights of people. MLK had some great ideas about education some of these were that men had to become more efficient. Also education must enable one to exam weigh evidence.
Rogers believes that we behave the way we die because of the situation we our put in. On other words only we know ourselves better than anyone else. Rogers states that human beings have the tendency to fill one’s self purpose. He believed just as John Locke did that human beings learn from experience and are inherently good. Everyone is looking for their “ideal self who they would like to be.”
Moral philosophers say that the main contribution of Hutcheson to the concept of moral sense is that he describes the working of moral sense. The process, Hutcheson described, begins with a feeling of pleasure or advantage felt in the moral sense faculty - not necessarily to us but advantageous to someone or generally for everyone. This perception of pleasure has a specific moral taste and causes us to feel moral approbation. We feel this pleasure when considering what is good or beneficial to others as a part of our natural instinct of benevolence. The things pursued for this pleasure are wanted because of our self-love and interest in the good for others.
Augustine states that liberal arts are the best suited for “useful precepts concerning morals” (pg. 52). This is an essential benefit of the liberal arts when talking about the social benefits that it brings. Augustine saw morality as living the way God would want you to and by attaining a liberal arts education you would be better prepared to know right from wrong and how to actually do what is moral. Nussbaum’s view of liberal arts creating a more moral person comes in the form of being educated about other cultures. She argues that children learn their differences and to cause conflict with other people as they grow older.
” The first can be seen in the way he structured his laboratory school. We are not passive receptors of senses there is something inside that is choosing, acting, and selecting. We are not isolated from one another; the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We are inevitably connected to one another (organic sense of the world). Dewey leaves behind dogma to reconcile reason and faith and he does this through his laboratory school.
In the different texts I’ve read called “The Purpose Of Education” by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and “Want to Get Into College? Learn to Fail” by Angel B. Perez I’ve notice although they bear some minor similarities the differences between the both are very clear. One major difference in both the text is the time they were written. Text #1 purpose of education was published in 1947 and text #2 learn to fail was in 2012 already they can both bring up a variety of topics, but I still see some of the same patterns even after half a century later. Not to say that both can’t tap into or overlap on some similar and enthralling ideas about education.
