Art as education and inspiration

This is a final scene from the movie” Dead Poet Society".
For those who didn’t see the movie, that is the moment when the school board had already excommunicated one professor for being different in the most positive way. With fear and rules they broke the characters of young students, the most valuable thing that should be honoured and not broken. But society does everything in order to have obedient people and the whole process starts in the school.
Still, those who has that very something, which is much more than that, can always find the way. And this way can become an inspiration for others...

Thanks Mirjana for posting this, because education MUST be inspiration! =0)

Like B.F. Skinner said..
"We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading."

We should also teach curiosity (if it doesn't already come naturally) and the satisfaction that comes from finding answers for yourself.

As a BiSONN16 commented on You Tube this brilliant scene. I cannot say it better and therefore I just quote them:" Probably one of my favourite scenes of all time. Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade, played by Al Pacino in his Oscar winning performance, gives a little talk about leadership and integrity during the end of the movie "Scent of a Woman". To keep you a little in sight here, Charlie (played by Chris O'Donnell) is about to be expelled because he is not snitching about what he saw, while the people who are quite clearly involved are being let go, primarily because they're rich. "
I love this scene and the message it sends. Brilliant.
