FOR 4 years we’ve watched in awe as tutors continue to show us the secret of working successfully with the young, eager learners of our world. (Answer at left.) Suddenly, this past month, we found our in- box filled with accounts we feel constitute the most memorable collection we’ve been able to share with you thus far. We know you’ll be as touched as we were. Mrs.Chips

“There is a story that once a mother brought her son to Gandhi and asked him to please convince her young son to study more.  Gandhi told them to come back in a month. When they came back a month later, Gandhi quickly convinced the son of the virtues of studying dili- gently. The mother was very grateful but asked, “Why did you make us wait so long?” Ghandi replied, “Before I could tell someone else to study more, I had to study more myself.”
