Education in the United States and elsewhere is a nightmare. Our history classes our inaccurate, our schools are underfunded, and more and more, we’re not churning out students that are prepared to live effectively in this world. We learn math, we learn how to read, but there are 3 more subjects we should be learning.

1. The law of attraction.Law-of-Attraction

As children, we have beaten into us the fact that there are a specific set of rules you have to follow in order to be happy and successful.

Even worse, we tell kids that there are only a handful of ways you can be happy and successful. You have to go to college and get a good job and buy the house and do the things and then die a happy person. Right?

Not necessarily. Teaching kids the law of attraction would give them better tools for going after their dreams.

It’s not as new agey as you might think. It’s just believing in yourself and going after your dreams. There’s nothing wrong with that and, frankly, a lot right with that.

2. Meditation.

There’s a saying popularized by the Dalai Lama that if every 8-year-old was taught to practice meditation, the world would eliminate violence in a generation.

This I believe to be an absolute fact.

Meditation doesn’t just clear out the clutter in our mind, but in children and adults makes us centered and more peaceful, rather than feeling rushed, anxious, scattered, and aggressive.

Just 10 minutes a day in meditation would be an easy class, or pre-class ritual, to begin. It’s just as important as any other class.

3. Gardening.

This is a big one. Students should learn not just how to nourish their beings, but also how to grow food organically.

As time goes on, we’ll likely see more and more foods being grown inorganically, and more and more, GMOs will be shoved down our throats.

By learning to garden and learning not just what to eat but the way to eat, we can begin to fight back against big biotech and agriculture companies.

If we implemented these three new classes tomorrow, I could pretty well guarantee the world would look radically different in 20 years.
