Life is a Field Trip

As students return from cultural trips, I’m reminded of the words of the great American author and teacher, John Gardner: “The business of education is to give the student both useful information and life enhancing experience; one largely measurable, the other not.” The importance of the above quotations has stuck with me since I first…
