The rustle of lunch bags in the morning, the dash to the school bus, and backpacks filled with fresh school supplies all tell us one thing: it’s the start of a new school year. From private and public schools to universities and beyond, we wanted to focus on how great San Diego education is with this issue. Even we can learn a thing or two about ensuring our children’s future through quality schooling, and how education is a precious resource with no equal.
There’s something to learn in each of these articles. Reality television stars can teach us the value of patience while famous local chefs can impart wise words to a younger generation of culinarians. High-tech cars and the latest leather styles embody greatness achieved through knowledge and experience, while charities and broadway shows teach us life lessons that can’t be learned in a classroom.
Education is something that is very near and dear to my heart, and I believe that we never truly stop learning. So as you hustle your kids to their classroom, remember that the true classroom has no doors, and that you are the greatest teacher in your child’s life.
