Education should craft well-rounded, harmonious human beings
From Cicero to Mozart, Goethe, Nietzsche, and Einstein, constructive ideas about
education are abundant; the author brings them to date within a suggestive and crafty
approach. Modern education should be more than learning facts and reproducing procedures,
even as we refer to mathematics. It should carefully intertwine a practical existential
philosophy with logical and applicable understanding of the purpose of knowledge.
Suggestions to instructors in the classroom and to the parents and students related
to the meaning of life, hence education, complete the delicate format of this book.
Mr. Glajar’s contribution to modern education should help take teaching and learning
to a higher level, as we all aspire to peace, love, and prosperity.
TEACH FOR LIFE, the new book by Irie Glajar, a math professor, provides many easy,
fun, effective, and practical ways for each of us as human beings and citizens of
the world, to fulfill our dual duties as teachers and students. We all have the responsibility
to learn and teach forever. Irie’s book can help us enjoy and effectively handle
our double duties and opportunities in those two most important capacities. His daring
escape in 1981 at age 26 from, then, hard-core Communist Romania, and his life thereafter
in the U.S.A show that a motivated person can accomplish virtually anything.
At a convention in 2009, I happened to meet one of Irie’s former students. She recalled
that back in the 1980’s, “Irie made math fun.” In TEACH FOR LIFE, Irie shares with
us effective and fun means of enjoying and fulfilling our endless opportunities to
teach and learn.
