Here's an example of how schooling could be based on The Spiral Dynamics Model, a model of
the development of human values. More info here:
It must be noted that all project ideas come from a unique experience of life. This one is coming mainly from stages Green, Yellow and a bit of Turquoise, regarding The Spiral Dynamics Model.
Be aware that the following is embedded with my worldview.
Growing Up Aligned with Spiral Dynamics
A school system designed to guide each child in fully integrating each stage and transcending and including each stage as they mature. This will result in more people with healthy integration of each stage, resulting in fewer people being stuck in one stage as fewer people miss out on their healthy integration of each stage .
The focus of this project idea is the full and healthy integration of each stage of human development.
0-3 - Beige Years
The main focus: survival of self
In their first 3 years, each child's integration of Beige is the main focus, which is about the survival of the self. The motto of Beige could be: 'I Survive'. Many children would die without support from a community, so there must be a simple community of carers (including parents) who ensure the child's survival, while allowing it to integrate its value of survival as much as it can by itself. One stage above Beige is Purple, in which the main value is community, so the child must not experience community too much in order to fully integrate Beige.
Schooling usually begins with the indoctrination of Blue values; religion, respecting authority, order, rules etc. when their paradigm is still 'I Survive'. Indoctrination of the humans in the Beige paradigm by humans in higher paradigms would be kept as minimal as possible for the purpose of the child's full and pure integration of Beige.
Forcing the Blue paradigm upon people in the Beige paradigm (who are focused mainly on learning how to meet their biological needs) is effective in their goal of changing their Beige values (meeting biological needs, safety, food, shelter, etc.) to Blue values (authoritarianism, tradition, holy, meaningful) only superficially because a person's core values remain the same even when their Value Stage is glossed over due to indoctrination by higher stages. Full integration of each stage at a time is important because a part of the stage will remain if unintegrated.
Each child carefully protected regarding health and is provided with high quality whole food from our farms.
3-6 - Purple Years
6-9 - Red Years
9-12 - Blue
12-15 - Orange
15-18 - Green
