“The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to
think–rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves,
than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.”
– Bill Beattie
Education has always been a very important factor in my life. Not only because it has given me the oportunity to become what I am not, but because I crave knowledge.
I have once again become a student. I am signed up to start learning ASL at a local community college. I love learning and I love a lot of teachers that I have had. I also think that good teachers are the ones that like the quote above teach you how to think and not what to think.
So, have you guys had any great teachers that you still remember from childhood or even recently? Do you believe that our education system works?
