True love has found me

I'm thoroughly infatuated with my Sociological and Philosophical Foundations of Education class (even if it is a mouthful). My professor is an exceptional guide, but I think also that as a whole my class is great! Our discussions are inquisitive, thoughtful and intense, and my professor is great about fielding our hard-to-answer questions, making clear distinctions between the times when what she says is fact, and when she's simply participating in the sharing of opinions. At this point in the semester we're exploring the struggle of racism and segregation in education. I absolutely LOVE that there is no right answer. I find myself mulling over possibilities, realities, actions and repercussions even outside of class, as I'm falling asleep or eating lunch. I love having the ground yanked out from under me in this way, forcing me to abandon opinions because there's simply no way to pin one down!

This is why I went to college.

Oh, you and my daughter would get along so well. She loves to THINK and be challenged in school. And in life. :)
