Pondering


here is something I am pondering as I plan for the new school year:
CS Lewis:
“I think this wise; the greatest service we can do to education is to teach fewer subjects. No one has time to do more than a very few things well before he is twenty, and when we force a boy to be a mediocrity in a dozen subjects we destroy his standards, perhaps for life”

That is a wonderful quote. I wish more educators would see the wisdom in doing less subjects well.

I hope that sounded right. :o)

Peace and Laughter!
Happy New Year!
