If I could change how schools work…
O sing to me sweet Muse bedecked in green
And with thy shepherd’s crook do guide my thoughts
To ancient times, when Socrates did sway
Athenian minds away from Sophists’ tricks.
On marbled steps disciple’s keen attention
Turned on every word he spoke and still
More sharp detractor’s tongue was dulled in time
By ‘s wit with wisdom honed to perfect edge.
None! took he student but they who willing come
To dialogue and through hard questions grasp
That deeper methodology by which
Mere facts alone should never dare to raise
Themselves in thoughtful competition. True
Learning’s to show in thinking, how to think.
