Goals of Education

A friend and I were emailing about education goals and I came up with a summary that captures what I hope for my children:

Deep relationships with God, self, family, others, the natural world, human history, and the arts.
The ability to understand, think, and communicate clearly, precisely, and beautifully.
Courage, initiative, responsibility, integrity, reverence.

This is the highly abbreviated version–each phrase deserves its own post, which I hope to do over the next few months
