Education and the importance of a well-rounded education is a subtle theme or thread we’ve touched on over the past few months on this show. Sometimes we focus on a trade or a skill set. Sometimes we focus on a mindset. Sometimes we focus on timing or ability.
But no matter what it is, we attempt to engage and inspire to help encourage the educational benefit of being prepared. Being vigilant. Being ready.
To this point, we’ve invited special guest Dr. JJ Walcutt to join us on the show as a guest. Dr. Walcutt recently worked with the Pentagon on establishing a plan for readiness culture through education. She co-authored and co-edited a book with contributions from non-profit organizations, the military, educational groups, industry and academia. The book is a result of a complex mission funded by the Pentagon: find a tactical solution to modernize learning and inspire readiness among Americans at every age.
Walcutt and her team discovered some ways to revamp educational norms and to update the teaching structures that haven’t changed over the last 100 years. The work aims to improve education as it relates to modern technology, psychological advancements and lifelong learning potential.
Top officials are recognizing the failures in education systems when it comes to national security, physical and mental health, and baseline problem solving. Coming up with a written plan is the first step in fixing these failures. And it starts much younger than you might think.
Dr. Walcutt is taking her work on the road by hitting every state in an effort to get the message out and drive a change that could reshape the future of America. You can follow her journey or check out her tour dates at https://www.teamjjusa.com/tour.
