Just started reading a book by a former headteacher and the introductory chapter starts with this quote by Friedrich Nietzsche;
" In large states public education will always be mediocre, for the same reason that in large kitchens the cooking is usually bad "
I find this hilarious but at the same time poignant. Maybe it could start a really healthy, friendly discussion.
I bet the first person to post will name the book!
"A water snake glided smoothly up the pool, twisting its periscope head from side to side; and it swam the length of the pool and came to the legs of a motionless heron that stood in the shallows. A silent head and beak lanced down and plucked it out by the head, and the beak swallowed the little snake while its tail waved frantically."
