The future ain’t what it used to be…

As hard as it might be to believe, I was a French major in college. Through my coursework, I studied the great French thinkers and philosophers: Descartes, Montesquieu, Voltaire and others. However, I usually end up going back to that noted American philosopher, Yogi Berra. More often than not, Yogi hits it right on the head. Yogi was once quoted as saying, "the future ain't what it used to be." I think that pearl of wisdom relates very well to the topic of the relationship between education and economic development.

Author’s Tea

Midway Elementary School student Madison Hensley, 7, was chosen to tell her story about the rewards of being kind during the school's first Author's Tea of the school year Tuesday.
