One great benefit of Education Week classes (and any other meeting attended by the spirit) is that you need not be limited to the insights of a single individual. As we are taught in D&C 88:122: "Appoint among yourselves a teacher, and let not all be spokesmen at once; but let one speak at a time and let all listen to his sayings, that when all have spoken that all may be edified of all, and that every man may have an equal privilege."

During the final class on Thursday I found that I was most instructed from the experiences shared by some of the class members towards the end of the hour. Our class ran slightly long because of how many people had insights to share. When it was over I hurried to meet my wife so that she would not have to wait long for me. I found her still in her classroom where nearly half the class was still present discussing in various groups their insights related to the class. Truly all were edified of all and clearly none wanted to leave early.
