Episode 54 - The Purpose of Education

This week, Lisa and Maria responding to a topic posted in Plurk by Beth Knittle - the purpose of education. Beth also posted a blog entry as well. Another blog post worth reading is from David Warlick, writtern in Jan. 2009. As always, we had a good conversation in the stream and the chat room. Of course we strayed a bit from the original topic and shared Mission statements from our schools and wondered where the mission statements came from, if staff were fully aware of what was said and how well did the school live up to their mission.
