What is the School?

by Lee E. Yunker

Updated 22 February 2015






 Who is the Pupil?

A child of God, not a tool of the state.

 What is the Teacher?

A guide, not a guard.

 What is the Faculty?

A community of scholars, not a union of mechanics.

 What is a Principal?

 A master of teaching, not a master of teachers.

 What is Learning?

A journey, not a destination.

 What is Discovery?

Questioning the answers, not answering the questions.

 What is the Process?

Discovering the ideas, not covering the content.

 What is the Goal?

Opened minds, not closed issues.

 What is the Test?

Being and becoming, not remembering and reviewing.

 What is the School?

Whatever we choose to make it.
