The time spent in the womb creates the building blocks of a mind and body that’ll carry you to the end.
Elementary school builds the knowledge, learning strategies and social interaction skills that’ll last a lifetime.
If you’re illiterate, you’re unemployable. Where do you become literate?
Where did Hemingway learn to spell? Where did NASA scientists learn to compute? Elementary school.
In those early years, you learn how to organize yourself, meet basic deadlines, how to stand in line, raise your hand, share your resources. The fundamentals.
You learn how to deal with adults who’re in charge.
