On 'Education'

I had to go to my son's school counselor for his summer classes' guidance. He quoted an interesting statement (which is wrongly attributed to Einstein as he once used in his speech);

"Education is that which remains, if one has forgotten everything he learned in school."

Schooling is different from teaching (education) At my age I frequently go back in my memory to see feel school teachers naseehat sounding in my ears
And that reminds me of my Medical school teacher/boss who was principal and we were sitting down for a group photo of my class of new doctors with him. A boy (well-known to me) of junior class passed by with two buttons open in his shirt and the principal called him to tell him this is not the way a doctor should dress and soon you will become a doctor my boy.

I miss that period of my life when teacher was taken not only as a knowledge imparter but as a character builder.
