TARCO Education Program
Concept: A Principled Based Program
TARCO Association Educational Program will focus on:
Self-Discipline: There is no better discipline than Self Discipline.
“I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.” - Aristotle
A School of Motivation: Keep a motivational and fraternal spirit.
“People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.” – Andrew Carnegie
Build a School of Life Skills more than a School of Tasks: Increasingly, if a computer can do it better than you, then you are replaceable.
We want to create a street-smart school where you are taught to live socially with friendship classes, classes to navigate bureaucracy, build an organisation, raise money, create a database, manage personal finances, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, figure out what is important, manage life expectations but most importantly: love to learn. These things are not addressed by typical lectures.
A School of Leadership: Leading mostly by example and by serving others.
“To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.” - Andre Malraux
A School of Health: Physical health and then mental health¨. It is of vital importance to respect one’s body and mind.
“Self-control is the chief element in self-respect, and self-respect is the chief element in courage.” - Thucydides, History of the Peloponnesian War
Visionary rather than backward looking
Technology and increasingly open universities allow us to gather the best educational information.
Look around and see what works and what doesn't around the world but also innovate.
Allow the student to go deeper in a subject with access to digital libraries.
Human: A School of mentors rather than teachers.
Encourage the participation of as many voluntary speakers as possible:
Taught by leaders in the industry
Gather real Life Experiences
Render classes meaningful
“You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.” – Dale Carnegie
Train on other types of intelligence: Linguistic, intra-personal, spatial, naturalist, musical, logical-mathematical, existential, interpersonal and bodily kinesthetic.
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
Independent Mindset: A School with no political agenda but freedom and critical thinking.
“There is no neutral education. Education is either for domestication or for freedom.” – Joao Coutinho
"Whenever we depart from voluntary cooperation, and try to do good by using force, the bad moral value of force triumph over good intentions."
Education For Gifted Children
Brotherhood & Respect
"We want to create a real Brotherhood for the future."
Butterfly Effect: We are conscious that strong social binds take time... It is at a young age that we build most of our core values and meet the people who will influence our lives . We want to create a group that will:
Help each other like a big family.
Have a common background, if not a common interest, at least common values of respect.
We want to teach the values of freedom and social responsibility so that these values are embedded in future generations. Reinforcing the idea that by helping others we help ourselves mentally, socially and economically.
