ABSTRACT
A speech titled "What Should Be at the Heart of All Education?," delivered by Richard L. Weaver II, retired professor of speech communication at Bowling Green State University, to the faculty of Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, October 14, 2006, is presented. In the speech, Weaver focuses on his value-added approach to education called strategic flexibility. He outlines the approach in several steps, starting with anticipation: thinking about situations and requirements likely to arise because of them; then assessment: taking stock of factors and conditions of the situation; then evaluation: determining the value of factors to all those involved and how they bear on your own skills and abilities.
