“Although we often succeed in teaching our pupils “subjects,” we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to think. They learn everything, except the art of learning.”
― Dorothy L. Sayers, The Lost Tools of Learning
Preparing children for life is not an easy task during these confusing times. Is the end goal of an education a profession or is the purpose of education something greater than that? Dorothy Sayers’s essay “The Lost Tools of Learning” has been the foundation of many models of classical education and contains deep insight in what the goals of “education” should be. At Peace Terrace, our aim is to revive the lost tools of learning because we believe as Albert Einstein eloquently states, “Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”
We invite you to partner with us on this journey to educate our youth in clear, ethical, and informed thinking by joining us on April 22nd in support of Peace Terrace Academy and the children in our community.
