Prompt- ‘You’re given a plot of land and have the financial resources to do what you please, what’s the plan?’
what a wonderful idea! This really got me thinking, what would I do with unlimited resources and land? Many may say ‘build a house’ or do something for themselves, personally if I were ever luck enough to be in this situation, in all honesty I think I would…
Build a food kitchen, in the most poorest areas in third world countries.
It breaks my heart to think that there are people out there with not enough to eat! Especially children. I think I would have to start in Africa and set up a place in different areas, where nutritious food is prepared and served daily. If there are people in remote villages near by, who are unable to get to it, part of the service would be to bring the food the the village.
Build a few schools and invest in education….
Education is so important to me, as an ex-high school teacher of ten years service I love to see people achieve! I think, I’d select some states across the USA with really low records of student achievement. Here, I would provide the resources needed to help increase students achievement. Or even just build better and newer schools. In particular I would focus on marginalised students, who have learning difficulties.
In the UK we are pretty good with educational achievement, but one thing I do think the system lacks, sometimes, is enough classroom assistants to help support learners with learning needs. I’d invest in this, in the UK. Increasing the number of schools for those with special learning needs, that are very extreme it holds them back from mainstream school. In mainstream schools, I’d increase the money put into employing special needs assistants in mainstream schools. 1. to support the students in class 2. to help reduce some classroom stress and worry for teachers. Who often worry if their teaching is effective when there are learners with learning needs.
In other third world countries, I’d just build brand new schools! And focus on increasing the level of students who are able to learn and have access to education.
If I had unlimited money, and land that’s what I’d do focus on feeding people, and increasing education.
