Lions Roar : January 2007
SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2007 59 THE GOOD CITIZEN. THE GOOD WORKER. THE GOOD PERSON. Three goals, three different models of education. The ideal of the good citizen goes back to the ancient Greeks, and it is the educational model of many contemporary liberals (and true conservatives). The goal is to form students into responsible, empowered, thoughtful citizens whose well-rounded education and good judgment will benefit society. The good worker is the goal of the mass education of the industrial revolution— standardized schooling to create punctual, hard-working, obedient workers for capitalism’s factories, mines, and “dark satanic mills.” A lot of public schooling today is still like this. And finally, the good person, the student who is caring, compassionate, peaceful, and tolerant. The student who sees all humanity as brothers and sisters. The student whose heart is as well-educated as their mind. This is the educational ideal of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as well as of Western educators pioneering the new field of social and emo- tional learning (SEL). “Real change is in the heart, but in modern education there is not sufficient talk about compassion,” the Dalai Lama told a conference entitled Educating the Heart held in Van- couver, British Columbia, during his fall tour of North America. “Through education, through training the mind and using intelligence, we can see the value of compassion and the harmfulness of anger and hatred.” Educating the Heart Teaching young people about compassion is one of the most important things we can do for them, says the Dalai Lama, and for the future of humanity. MELVIN Mc LEOD reports from Vancouver, where His Holiness talked with students and education experts about schooling for the heart as well as for the mind. CPPHOTO/RICHARDLAM
