“Our lives are influenced by what we learn in the school of life and by little snippets of what we learn during our school years. The moments that truly count are the ones that have either sparked our imagination or broken our hearts. These experiences form the garden of life in which we grow. They become our personal garden of experiences.
However, there are professional ways of transforming schools into gardens of experiences too. We need to search for every opportunity to do so, build these gardens from the ground up, and fight for them. We need to learn. We need to forgive ourselves when we make mistakes. We need to find and surround ourselves with like-minded people. And we need time.
Formative education integrates all the above into one.”
