Aspiration starts in the classroom.

IT was good to read Peter J Brown's letter "The meaning of aspiration" (Gazette 01.06.15) because it is really important for us to be clear about what we want to achieve.

We really want to have work which is rewarding in content apart from the monetary reward we receive for it.

Equally is leisure time we have learnt to been enriching because we can be creative.

It starts with schooling, which should aim to do far more than providing efficient fodder for production for profit.

To me it is summed up in a throwaway remark made at parliamentary question time that his opponent knows the price of everything but the value of nothing.

An essential ingredient of education in schools is human relationships, and that is more than responsible sexual relationships.

Peter's call for clear thinking about objectives is very pertinent if we are thinking what is we are striving for.
