Well, teachers have been profoundly demoralized
in recent years and are often treated with
contempt by politicians. There’s a great deal of
reckless rhetoric in Washington about the

Education is like alcohol; some people can’t take it.
April 20, 1890-September 7, 1959
A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad. — Theodore Roosevelt
“I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories.”
- Ray Bradbury
Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education.
- Bertrand Russell
