We are raising today’s children in sterile, risk-averse and highly structured environments. In so doing, we are failing to cultivate artists, pioneers and entrepreneurs, and instead cultivating a generation of children who can follow the rules in organized sports games, sit for hours in front of screens and mark bubbles on standardized tests.
“Education has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading.”
~ George Macaulay Trevelyan
“It’s the questions we can’t answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he’ll look for his own answers.”
~ Patrick Rothfuss
I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well. **Alexander the Great
“I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.”
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
