Michele over at The Family-Centered Life is starting a series of discussions on the ideas behind education - the influences, the philosophies, the goals. I think this is fabulous. Ideas are the beginning and first cause of so much of what we actually execute in a learning environment. It's crucial to go back over them, to remind ourselves why we teach our children, what motivates us to choose some materias over others, and how we hope our children will benefit and thrive from a solid foundation.
So go on over and join in the first discussion of the series. I look forward to reading what everyone has to contribute. It will be a rich and meaty exchange for sure, and lots of fun!
