Academic board

The project was born during my study at LvBS. Of course, being still an idea it looked somewhat differently, but studying framed it pointing at important things and leaving what was not needed out… You can be lucky but without knowledge you can lose everything in a moment or be not productive or ineffective. I guess everyone understands education in his/her own way. One can read hundreds of books and make no use of it and another one can without reading any book attend a lecture instead which will later change his/her life. I like the format when I know what to read and a teacher can put it in simple words as usually his/her knowledge is a real experience. This all I received in the school and this is all that’s needed.
