This week’s focus question is: What is the goal of education?  Think about this and create a list of what you believe is the goal of education?  Then, keep your list it in mind as you complete each of your daily tasks. If you find information that relates to your list or question, remember to include the following:

·       the idea or thought that sparked your interest

·       where you found it
