As homeschool families start a new school year, these words of encouragement written by Raymond Moore help keep the focus on the purpose of education and provide wisdom as teacher-parents establish their family’s homeschool philosophy. He writes:
Teaching is inspiring a student rather than filling him with facts. It is responding to him rather than demanding of him. It is motivating him to explore on his own rather than controlling his explorations. It is inducing him to think, rather than repeating others’ thoughts. Teaching is leading others to be like you — and more. It is finding lessons in everything you see, hear smell taste, and touch, bringing them together to give deeper meaning and fulfillment to life.
