In my post yesterday, I talked about my experience with Chicago Lights Tutoring (www.chicagolights.org). I would like to add a “page 2.”
Plato in his classic work The Republic said “the direction in which education starts a person will determine their future life.” Chicago Lights works diligently with students from the earliest grades through high school and is making a significant difference in the lives of thousands of young people. There are few more fitting legacies – for each one of us – than to quietly inspire the education of young people and to foster an appreciation for learning. W.B. Yeats once said “Education is not a pail to fill but a fire to light. . . .” If any reader is interested in lighting some educational fires, check out local tutoring opportunities or – if you are in Chicago – check out Chicago Lights. You will not be disappointed.
