We don't find meaning in learning, we bring meaning to learning. If we can, that is. “Whatever!” seems to be a common bored attitude of children toward school. Bribes, or threats, or lures of a future well-paying job fail to inspire them. This is to be expected, if we fail to give them a compelling reason for their very existence. All sons and daughters are endowed before birth with a remarkable mandate from God. It's a mandate that brings extraordinary meaning to education. The Lost Purpose for Learning explains what that mandate is, and why it brought about such an extraordinary level of flourishing for people in the United States. Yet, it has been neglected for the past 100 years, and the adverse results are only hidden from the inebriated. The Lost Purpose for Learning explains in simple language what the lost mandate is, and how it can be restored to education at all levels.
