Education is not pencils.

Education is not tests.

Education is not classrooms.

Education is more.

 

Education is not principals.

Education is not schools.

Education is not teachers.

Education is more.

 

Education is not memorization.

Education is not regurgitation.

Education is not obedience.

Education is more.

 

Education is you.

Education is me.

Education is us.

 

Education is our connection,

The bond we create

In which I give my time

And you give yours

In hopes that I learn something

And that you learn more.

 

Education is reciprocity.

Education is collaboration.

Education is sharing.

Education is learning.

 

I learn about life,

You learn about life.

I see the world in your light,

You see the world in mine.

We share an experience

And add value to our lives.

 

We grow from learning.

We learn to grow.

We gain so much more,

Our minds begin to glow

Hues of green and red

Blue and yellow,

Things I used to dread

Out my mind they go.

 

Education is empowerment.

Things in the fog

Haunt us no more.

 

Education is creation.

Our friendship, our bond,

From learning is created.

 

Education is life.

We learn to construct

Better and brighter lives,

Not because we should

But because we can.

 

See?

Education is more.

Education is a dream,

Education is a goal,

It’s what we should try to create,

Not degrade evermore.
