An introduction

"Education is not the filling of a pail,but the lighting of a fire." - William Butler Yeats

Welcome to my blog on issues of higher education, specifically around the Boston area. Education plays a tremendous role in everyone's lives, whether formal or otherwise and while universities are a typically a place of learning and growth, they can also be a place of tremendous controversy. I hope to examine and provide commentary on some of these issues, ranging anywhere from issues of diversity to school housing. Though I aspire to be an elementary school teacher one day, college is hopefully where future students will be headed and the world of higher education is intriguing place to explore.
