Education isn't about standardized tests, it's about teaching to prepare for the future
Dr. Gardner introduces the object of education is to teach Truth, Beauty and the Good. We are so caught up with standardized tests and the like we forget that to learn is to expand ones horizon. We mustn't forget the original Greek 'Schools' were discussions on how to improve life, to discover why a certain item is. 'Why' is answered with math and science 'How' is answered through art, music, theatre, sports, and the like. Everyone needs to read this before they make their decision on the benefits and/or weaknesses of No Child Left Behind. Everyone needs to read this to inform teacher and parent alike the importance of a well rounded education that allows the students mind to explore the world around him or her.Was this review helpful?
