The Bottom Line - "Our Socratic Oath"

     I love author and independent school educator, Rick Ackerly's article, "Our Socratic Oath," in this issue of Independent School magazine.  To give you a flavor of the article, here is a quote from it that says it all:
"Happiness, success, winning, and achievement are not what we should wish for our children. Rather, we should wish that they develop the grit to live in life's tensions — the confidence to learn from conflict, mistakes, disappointment, failure, loneliness, and losing."
