Not Eating Gravel

Sharing Options

“I have no problem with high standards or tight rules — but the rules are for the children; the children are not there to give the rules something to work upon. There is nothing wrong with hard work in a rigorous school, but there is something wrong with work that is hard for all the wrong reasons. Every capable teacher should be striving to make the environment of the classroom normal and life-giving. This kind of discipline is life; it is drinking milk, not eating gravel” (The Case for Classical Christian Education, p. 148).
