As part of the P.LE.E.S. code, the fourth letter is E which stands for Education. As all of these letters represent something very very vital to the Black Community as a whole, it can be justly argued that Education & Spirituality are the glue that will hold everything else together. Education can’t be stressed enough in the context of its importance to our cultural success. Whenever I mention the aspect of education I notice that the adults tend to look to the children and the younger people as if this only applies to them. Our adult class must not think that they are exempt from this. There are many in the adult class who just don’t get it, many times even more so than the youth. We must allow the youth to get every chance to flourish and expand on their full potential while they still have the drive and the desire to do so, before others strip that from them.
Educating ourselves and our youth needs to be each communities priority and obligation. We should be determined in our purpose to ensure that our children and adults who want to learn get the very best from our scholars, because we have them. We should also be strong in our defense of not wanting anyone else to educate our most prized people, our children. We can’t continue down the path of allowing others to come in and indoctrinate our children with their philosophy, points of view, lies, ridicules, disclaimers and the long list of negative mumbo jumbo that either stymies our children’s growth and development or diminishes their capacity to even to think for themselves. This is a community responsibility and not one that we can afford to shelve or shuffle off to others who have no vested interest in the well being and success of babies. Ir’s also important to remember that education just doesn’t come form being in a class room. Life is education for our children, let’s remember that.
