There is no such thing as being overeducated

Ron Says…

“Environment is another grossly overlooked factor in contemporary education, since environment is the one thing which can give data a proper weight. Many a navigator can sail the devil out of a ship in a classroom and get lost trying to find the end of a pier. Education which is done against strictly academic background is stultifying* and most of its importance is lost because it has not exercised the analyzer in weighting and deriving. A classroom is no proper place to learn to run a steam locomotive….

“A man can be given rudimentary instruction in reading, writing, history, literature, music, manners and mathematics. Anyone keeping him in school, as just school, after he learns these is wasting his manhood. A man should be in the environment of his chosen profession from the age of at least fifteen. He should be educated after that in short spurts in school as he desires to know more. And he should be educated by professionals in his own business. If this happened to more men and women there would be many more engineers to whom one could say with confidence, ‘Build me a bridge,’ or housewives about whom one could say, ‘She’s a swell cook and her man’s happy. And you ought to see her kids.’ ”

“There is no such thing as being overeducated. There is such a thing as being badly educated. The length of time in a school is no criteria of either one.”

Since my son has been receiving auditing at Mace Kingsley, my life as a mother really changed. My son is much more calm and mature than before. The tailor-made hatting given to me by Sandy was essential and complemented the auditing. I now duplicate totally my son's universe, and this keys-out both of us.
Since my kids have been receiving auditing this trip I saw them light up! The first day they came back so talkative, so full of energy! I saw them happier and way more affectionate towards my husband and me, telling us how much they love us and giving us hugs and kisses!
Both my husband and I have been amazed at how much more in communication our daughter is with us now! After her Purification Rundown she was so much calmer and easier to be around and has much less drama.
I have noticed that his tone level is higher, he is happier, calmer, more considerate, and more willing and able to do the things he needs to do at home and at school. He seems to be more 'himself'.
Since the first day she loved her auditor and she came happily for session.  I have never seen her as happy as when she got out of session, very talkative and with a lot of energy and willing to be outside in contact with nature.  I realized the sessions brought her to present time and she is more at cause.
