Train up a child in the way she should go: and when she is old, she will not depart from it.
People often use the words “nice” and “kind” interchangeably, assuming that they’re “basically the same thing.” The truth is, the difference between nice vs kind is night & day. “Nice” is a self-centered behavior pattern, where you are acting in a “pleasing” manner, to “be a nice person,” and get people to like you. “Kind” is an other-centered behavior pattern, where you’re acting in the best interests of others, out of a sense of love, empathy, and compassion.
What is K-12 Classical Education?
A classical education emphasizes human virtue and moral character, responsible citizenship, a content rich course of study, and teacher-led classrooms.
At Hillsdale College, we help parents and teachers offer this time-honored education to their students, whether at home or in the classroom. Ultimately, a classical education leads to the cultivation of moral and intellectual virtue so that each student becomes capable of self-government, and therefore able to live a happy life. These ends, in turn, will help to create good citizens and strong families and communities.
