A few years ago, I took my sister to her first day at the Lyceum. Very little had changed. The walls were the same, as were the fittings and fixtures, and the teachers radiated the same warmth and dedication to the school’s values that I had grown so fond of during my time there. Everything, except the students themselves, seemed affixed in time and memory.
Indeed, when I listen to my sister talk about the Lyceum of 2021, I am struck by how similar it is to the school I went to so many years ago.
Truly, in an age Bauman has fittingly deemed to be constantly liquid, the Lyceum stands as a veritable beacon of consistency; firmly anchored to its values of tolerance and compassion.
That really is what the Lyceum is to me, a place constant as the northern star, of whose true-fix’d and resting quality there is perhaps no fellow in the firmament.”
