A Quote on Education

I encountered this quote on education "It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought -- that is to be educated. -Edith Hamilton, educator and writer (1867-1963" and thought how our Indian educational system (at least majority of them) is woefully inadequate. Enormous stress placed on rote method is saddening. It is nice to read about alternate methods of education being tried out by some visionaries.
