Monday Meditation: On The Proper Education of All

“Above all the education of youth from every social background has to be undertaken, so that there can be produced not only men and women of refined talents, but those great-souled persons who are so desperately required by our times.”- Gaudium Et Spes

What cultural skills and requirements make it difficult for students of all social backgrounds to succeed in an educational setting? How can we reform systems, processes, and classrooms to make learning environments that produce not only “refined talents” but also “great souls”? How can we engage in Education as community development work?

Our speaker yesterday, James McDermott (Holy Name School), shared some illustrative clips from the Wire. Watch and ponder the above questions.
