"Most of us send our kids off to school each weekday morning without giving much thought to the reasons we do so. If asked, we might say that going to school is just what kids do, much as adults go to work. Besides, the law requires it. But why do we as a society want our kids to be educated? These questions are not merely academic, nor are the answers self-evident. Indeed, the rationale for educating children has a direct bearing on what they'll actually do in the classroom—and on the practical question of what we can do to help them become enthusiastic and excellent learners."
