The Solution to our Education Woes is… Aristotle?

Lately, I have been feeling esoteric and trying to discover ways that are beyond the usual buzz words to describe what we do in education.  Yesterday, I began writing a book/package that will help me explain my coaching philosophy and when I can to the part about coaching the “whole athlete” I began wondering what exactly that meant.  What is a whole athlete or student?  How can I define what the means?  Is it really just an empty buzzword that we throw around because it sounds nice?
