Indiana Jones and Going Back to School

HT: John Mark N. Reynolds

Everything you need to know about education can be found in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. This is an overstatement, of course, but not much of one. Character will define the education you receive or give and character is the theme of the lastIndy film: have it and you choose wisely and live, turn out to be a Nazi or a self-serving worm and die. You might survive a school bureaucracy as a totalitarian or a grifter, but you will never be educated or be an educator. You might not rise up the hierarchy through virtue, but you will please God and best serve your fellow humans.
Choose wisely.
