Television and Education in the Kingdom Pt. 2

As the Establisher of the Baha’i Faith taught, there is far more to proclaiming and teaching the message of the Baha’i Faith that continues to occur long after one has been through the Firesides twice. Once that has been accomplished there are deepenings and personal and community research beyond measure which would certainly be greatly enhanced by the audio visual medium and this is well established by much practical experience by many teachers in the Cause to date.

As the number of educated young adults increases there will be a corresponding increase in the number of educated children raised under the Provisions of the Covenant in Baha’i households. Parents will eventually become the primary educators of their own children after as well as before the age of responsibility assisted by the supportive Baha’i community under the Provisions of the Covenant.

Soon the Firesides as taught by The Establisher of the Baha’i Faith will become the foundation of the public education curriculum as they include all the major disciplines from art to literature to history, science, math, linguistics and much more. Audio visual education tools will be used far more effectively in the Kingdom than they are today to increase learning in all these schools of thought from the Baha’i perspective. This is not to say that they won’t remain supplementary as that would naturally be more effective than to rely heavily upon them as an educational mainstay.
