That each individual has a divine potential that can be tapped into through education to make that person the consummate being that s/he can be. The Rites-of-Passage / Rites-of- Ascension exist to be centering, empowering, ennobling and educational initiatives.
The goal of the quintessential and consummate educator is to impart the information, instruction and knowledge that will elevate the pupil to the educator's level, and then even beyond.
Operational Definition: "Community-based education is that process of teaching / learning (education, instruction, facilitation) that enlightens and empowers the individual, family and community members while creating life-long learners." Y. Odom
