The lost tools of learning

The Lost Tools of Learning - Dorothy L. Sayers

I came across this book and thought it would be an interesting little read. Nothing like picking up an old essay from time to time and analysing how things are in comparison to today's ideas.

What did I think? I am impressed. Maybe it is time to re-analyse some of the avenues of today's education system. There is a lot to be said for the reading statistics. When I look at the books that were gifted to elderly friend as a child... the reading was extremely hard in comparison to the books my children are reading today, at an even older age than she. There has to be some thing said about the education she was given in comparison to the systems today. Or do we just not have the time for reading in a world where socialisation abounds and technology is at our fingers.

Well worth reading and thinking about.
