"The students are alive, and the purpose of education is to stimulate and guide that self-development. The corollary of this idea is that teachers also should be alive with living thoughts." (A. N. Whitehead)

I am convinced that mere training would not be sufficient: Children and young people need teachers who are not only well trained but also well educated. Education expands training by a crucial factor – the human aspect. Thus – in the words of Amos Comenius – knowledge becomes conscience, which asks the essential question as to how our knowledge is applied. Therefore, the core issue is not: EITHER – OR, but a definite AND.
