Back to School

As James Baldwin said, “The purpose of education, finally, is to create in a person the ability to look at the world for himself, to make his own decisions.” Learning is an innate, intuitive process: All students can and do learn. Before we can “model learning” for others, including our students and colleagues, we must engender the necessary transformation within ourselves.
