We were, until about a year ago, the wealthiest society in the history of the world, or so I kept hearing. I question that.
I am trying to imagine a childhood more impoverished than one without fairy tales.
Look at it this way: education is the
- training of the intellect
- passing on of a tradition
- formation of the soul
- preparation for the “real world”
But our modern mindset has destroyed the imagination, which is 1000 times more important than anything else a school can cultivate.
