Socrates said “Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.” On this episode of The Paul Leslie Hour, we’ll meet Dr. John O’Sullivan. He says first he tries to be an educator, and as we will soon find out…he is inquisitive and thoughtful. Whether you agree with the ideas he expresses, we hope it may encourage you to think. Who is Dr. John O’Sullivan? He is a professor of Sociology at the University of North Georgia. His interests are in ecology, education, social change, population trends, and sustainability.
