Our word “school” has an interesting derivation…
From Ancient Greek σχολή
- Leisure time given to learning.
- A school; a place for learning or instruction.
- A student body; the disciples of a teacher.
- A sect; body of followers of a teacher or system, such as the Praetorian guard.
- An art gallery.
How close or far from the above ideas are we? Is there any connection between leisure and learning in our schools?
