Elsewhere, endlessly we hear about the leaks and cracks of an education system, despite the amount attention and finance given to improve or fix it.
My contention is that one matter is this, there won’t be real progress for the system, until we are clear with the philosophical position of education.
Tareem is not perfect either.
But the environment of knowledge is alive and active. Besides school, be it a one-to-one or group class, none of my private teachers have fees. It’s not a measuring stick but a reflection of what’s going on.
One way to put it, it’s gone past ‘education’ as we often see it. It’s just basic philosophy, position and culture of trying to always be of benefit to others. And secondly perhaps, the self ought to be secondary.
Here, my friend and al-Qur’an teacher, is giving me a lesson on how to make sour dough bread from scratch. In the Comment Box below, I’ll try to insert the class on how to make homemade gel or lotion that can substitute Vaseline and so forth.
There’s more to write on this matter but for now, I hope this post corrects the perception if there are some people out there who think madrasah students don’t get hungry.
May I suggest some butter?
