I liked this morning's (8-29) discussion of education. It made me think of the one teacher I revered most. In Junior High this math teacher did not just teach math (give packets of information). He inspired by making us think. Instead of answering questions, he asked questions that helped us discover the answer. I think inspiration, discovery and passion for knowledge are some of things missing in today's eduction. I liked the private investigator, "Columbo" because he asked questions of wonder. "I wonder . . . ?", "Could it be . . .?" Where is the wonder and sense of awe about life, science, history, knowledge? The computer age has reduced us to information instead of inspiration. Just thoughts. Thanks for stimulating them.
