Who was your favorite teacher?
One of my many favorites was Mr. James Barlow, who passed away last October at age 86. He taught philosophy and psychology at Aloha High School and kept me engaged my last two years there. Typically, Barlow began class by saying “Let the indoctrination begin!” and to those who arrived late “If you can’t come early, come late!” If you ever participated in mock government or the Model United Nations in Oregon, Barlow likely played a part in your experience. He was often critical of standard methods of teaching. In fact, he and a former student co-wrote a book, Unfettered: A Philosophy of Education. It’s up next on my reading list.
