Many thanks to Jack McGee for his thoughtful and well-written My Turn ("Privileged or hard-working?") about how we decide what to offer in schools to our young people.
To use the image from Mortimer Adler that McGee included, I hope we can all agree that our children are like beautiful, different-shaped water glasses, and that the goal of education should not be to remake the glasses so they are all the same shape, but instead to fill each of them to the brim.
