With the Advocate report regarding VISD’s situation with extracurricular activities and traveling expenses, etc., I figured I would open up a conversation in regards to the purpose of education and schools. I will my post short and sweet and hope the comments will spur some conversation.

Some questions to consider include: What is the goal of education? Why does society place importance on educating the human person? Is it the place of a school to provide all extracurricular activities? If not, which ones should a school sponsor and why? Are there some that are not offered that you think should be? What would be some positive outcomes for the kids?
