Sharing our Heritage & Legacy
Birchwood School of Hawken founders Charles and Helene Debelak discuss the goal of real education.
With a focus on Educating Children: Principles for Becoming, they draw from their knowledge of educational history, the science behind learning, and their own experience working directly with children and young adults.
Real education creates momentum toward lifelong learning and lifelong fulfillment. It generates internal motivation and capacity for growth through the accumulation of attitudes, habits, skills, and knowledge, which enables children “to become what they can become.”
