Educational Philosophy: Education is not only a state of mind, but a sense of responsibility. While professional instruction is almost a necessity, the ultimate outcome of the educational process is more highly dependent upon the input of the students themselves. Various concepts and ideas will be presented which beg individual analysis and interpretation. This, in turn, should prompt group discussion and response to various viewpoints
