GUEST EDITORIAL Looking Forward in Education By Ronald P. Stewart
The fundamentals of a great educational system will not, and have not changed. Great teachers make great schools, and the interaction between the individual teacher and student will continue to prevail as the critical factor in a young person’s education. Of course technology will play an increasing role, and part of technology’s attraction is that it makes it cheaper to deliver the educational message. But if I had one wish for future students, it is that they have they have the good fortune to have remarkable teachers who model excellence in the way they communicate. I would hope that we always cherish outstanding teachers for the invaluable resource they are, and that we encourage the most talented young graduates to enter the teaching profession. #
