Education Equation

Here’s my response to Howard Nemerov’s poem “September, the First Day of School,” a selection for tomorrow’s class, a graduate course on reading.  This poem is taken from a collection of literature edited by Robert Coles titled Teaching Stories: An Anthology on the Power of Learning and Literature.  It’s quite a lovely poem on the faith we put in teachers and schools.  The poem can also be found here.
