Education is close to my heart. There is nothing more rewarding in this life than to have the chance to shape and mold a young mind. To contribute into the process of training up children so they can be released to impact our world. I’m starting this segment on educational quotes for your edification and enjoyment.
Education- as defined by Noah Webster
EDUCA’TION, n. [L. educatio.] The bringing up, as of a child, instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.
ON EDUCATIONAL SYSTEMS:
“I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built up on the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think.”
-Anne Sullivan,tutor and mentor for Helen Keller (1866-1836)
