Beit Midrash Jewish Laws and Thoughts Texts of Jewish Thought
Kitvei HaRav Kook 4
Comparing Jewish and Western Views of Childhood and Education - Part I
Rav Kook’s creative thinking sees childhood not just as a preparation for life, but probably the most important and idealistic period of life itself. Accordingly, education shouldn't be geared for learning a profession but to develop the fresh and Godly unadulterated soul. Education must be suited for the individual, and also for the nation, and how much more so regarding the Chosen Nation.
