“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows” Sydney J. Harris
This was the quote on today’s Sacred Writing Time slide. This quote makes me think. When I was in school, I think education felt that its job was to fill the file cabinets in our brains with information. Not to give us a window to the world. Are we still trying to just fill the filing cabinets with information or are we trying to open the windows? What do the students really want? I know what the current research says, but sometimes in my classroom, I see different results. Can we really have the best of both worlds or does it need to be one or the other?
