...In Other Words...

Quote for June 30

The least of learning is done in the classrooms.

— Thomas Merton

…in other words…

I partially agree with this one as basic knowledge starts in classrooms they teach the basic and fundamentals but the kids learned it the best way when they encounter it in real life. Real experiences are the best way to learn something. And where can we get experiences of course it should start at home as parents should teach their children more than their teachers. For me teachers are just starters, parents are secondary teachers who guides their children in what they've learned from school and then exposure to society and putting your knowledge into action and life is the best teacher of all.

But sometimes you can have so much knowledge in school especially if the school teaches vocational courses where you'll have to study for a few months only. There they teach the actual work that can be done. Education is fast-paced and more on actual education than theories.

Hope I can be of help understanding this quote. Just expressing my opinion.
