Book learning.

I've been reading Parker Palmer's To Know As We Are Known: Education as a Spiritual Journey ("To teach is to create a space in which the community of truth is practiced.") and Michael Lawrence's Maggot Pie ("There was this tradition in our town that if a boy weed in the Piddle Pool the night before he started in the Infants he'’d have a lucky school life.") while watching the first two episodes of the 1981 BBC Brideshead Revisited ("I thought you were dying." "I thought so too.") Together they have reminded me of how very varied is our experience of communities within educational institutions.
