Quote of the Day

When I began homeschooling fourteen years ago, I read many “how to” books and articles. One of the articles was “The Lost Tools of Learning” by Dorothy Sayers. It was very impressive.
The most impressive of the many things Miss Sayers said was that the goal of education should be to teach children how to think; we want them to learn the art of learning. Then they will be equipped for life; whether or not they learn all the subjects possible in school, they will be able to learn any subject when it becomes necessary or desirable, if they know how to learn.
