Educating Our Children



"Not much education will happen without creating an environment that virtually rings with the thrill of the chase, the mystique of the discovery, and the honorable nature of the endeavor. Education is not happening in a classroom full of long faces, empty stares, and bored yawns. There may be an expensive form of babysitting going on, but certainly not education."
