Academic beliefs:

Mr. MacLeod believes that education has enormous practical value as a means for students to better their lives in measurable ways. It can also help people develop in less quantifiable areas; however, there are so many things that we can learn from each other and become better people in the process. “I don’t think education’s importance can be overstated – it is one of the most important things we can do as people.”
