Ένα βίντεο για χρήσιμες αρχές της εκπαίδευσης

Διαβάστε και την επιστολή του Lincoln στον δάσκαλο του γιου του:

He will have to learn, I know, 
that all men are not just,
all men are not true.
But teach him also that 

for every scoundrel there is a hero;
that for every selfish Politician, 

there is a dedicated leader...
Teach him for every enemy there is a 

friend,

Steer him away from envy,
if you can,
teach him the secret of
quiet laughter.

Let him learn early that 

the bullies are the easiest to lick... Teach him, if you can,
the wonder of books... 
But also give him quiet time 
to ponder the eternal mystery of birds in the sky,
bees in the sun, 
and the flowers on a green hillside.

In the school teach him 

it is far honourable to fail 
than to cheat... 
Teach him to have faith 
in his own ideas, 
even if everyone tells him 
they are wrong... 
Teach him to be gentle 
with gentle people, 
and tough with the tough.

Try to give my son 

the strength not to follow the crowd 
when everyone is getting on the band wagon... 
Teach him to listen to all men... 
but teach him also to filter 
all he hears on a screen of truth, 
and take only the good 
that comes through.

Teach him if you can, 

how to laugh when he is sad...
Teach him there is no shame in tears, 

Teach him to scoff at cynics 
and to beware of too much sweetness... 
Teach him to sell his brawn 
and brain to the highest bidders 
but never to put a price-tag 
on his heart and soul.

Teach him to close his ears 

to a howling mob 
and to stand and fight 
if he thinks he's right. 
Treat him gently, 
but do not cuddle him, 
because only the test 
of fire makes fine steel.

Let him have the courage 

to be impatient... 
let him have the patience to be brave. 
Teach him always 
to have sublime faith in himself, 
because then he will have 
sublime faith in mankind.

This is a big order,

but see what you can do... 
He is such a fine fellow, 
my son!
