Quote Of The Week

An eternal question about children is, how should we educate them? Politicians and educators consider more school days in a year,
 more science and math,
the use of computers and other technology in the classroom,
 more exams and tests,
 more certification for teachers, and less money for art.
All of these responses come from the place where we want
to make the child into the best adult possible,
not in the ancient Greek sense of virtuous and wise,
but in the sense of one who is an efficient part of the machinery of society.
But on all these counts, soul is neglected.

- Thomas Moore


Childhood is not preparation for adulthood - it is a part of life. - A. Neill

  1. I absolutely love that your children are always reading together! I mean, reading individually is valuable enough, but building that bond, relationship, and education of reading together at the same time is just precious!
