Last night, Anthony (youngest son) and I had a discussion on education and excellence.
We were cleaning up together after visitors.
Some of our conversation with our visitors had been on educational excellence.
While cleaning the kitchen , Anthony mentioned his thoughts. To his mind, the most important goals in education were to “have a love for learning and to know the basics.”
If by basics Anthony means the tools of learning, then I am right there with him.
The Lost Tools of Learning by Dorothy Sayers.
Sometimes, Anthony reminds me of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes – he says the most amazing things!
