Our species needs, and deserves, a citizenry with minds wide awake and a basic understanding of how the world works.
Our goal is not that the boys speak five different languages, nor that they nab perfect SAT scores. Not that those aren’t options, of course. Our goal is both more and less lofty. It is that they learn to learn, and that they love to learn. That they approach the world with creativity and expectation. And that their minds be wide awake.
