C. S. Lewis
C. S. Lewis C. S. Lewis, a well-known author and apologist, is best known by people of all ages for his seven volume series entitled The Chronicles of Narnia.

Education And Egalitarianism In America
Education and Egalitarianism in America The American educator Horace Mann once said: As an apple is not in any proper sense an apple until it is ripe, so a human being is not in any proper sense a human being until he is educated. Education is the process through which people endeavor to pass along to their children their hard-won wisdom and their aspirations for a better world.

I have spent all my adult life in academe, first as a student and then as a professor. During that time I have seen many variations in the role of intercollegiate athletics in the university, and I?ve developed sharply split opinions on the subject.

Crash: Extraordinary at First View, Ordinary Upon Critique
Sheila ran out of our English classroom in tears. Several friends bombarded her with sympathy and comments on Miss J?s mindless comments concerning Sheila?s Iranian ancestry, but they didn?t understand. Her family was kind, loving and compassionate; how dare our English teacher state that no Iranians cared about anything but their own country? In the form of a good friend?s experience, this crude generalization was my first time witnessing racism firsthand, but it was certainly not my last. Tho
