Top Childhood Education Quotes

Childhood Education Quotes By Nicholas D. Kristof

Our nearly century-long experiment in banning marijuana has failed as abysmally as Prohibition did ... In contrast, legalizing and taxing marijuana would bring in substantial sums that could be used to pay for schools, libraries or early childhood education. — Nicholas D. Kristof

Childhood Education Quotes By Joseph Chilton Pearce

Ideal for the child and society in the best of times, Rudolf Steiner's brilliant process of education is critically needed and profoundly relevant now at this time of childhood crisis and educational breakdown.

The concerned parent and teacher will find a multitude of problems clearly addressed in this practical, artistic approach. — Joseph Chilton Pearce

Childhood Education Quotes By Ferid Murad

The childhood poverty of both my parents and their minimal education did much to influence me and my two younger brothers in our education and career choices. One brother became a dentist and the other, a professor of anthropology with a Ph.D. degree. — Ferid Murad

Childhood Education Quotes By Bill Vaughan

I have the students for six hours a day. The community has them for 18 hours, plus prenatal and early childhood. I don't believe the schools create (the achievement gap), but our responsibility is not to add to it. We won't eliminate the gap until the community makes education a priority, but the schools can't wait for the community to do its part. — Bill Vaughan

Childhood Education Quotes By Lance Henriksen

My whole childhood, that made my skin curl. I was looking for something authentic. I think that drove me into the arts, I really do. That really did it. The only other thing that made me survive, as a human being, was getting into the arts. I was surrounded by people that were very bright and they invited you in. They were gracious. So, it gave me a great education. — Lance Henriksen

Childhood Education Quotes By Auguste Comte

Religion is an illusion of childhood, outgrown under proper education. — Auguste Comte

Childhood Education Quotes By Kirsten Gillibrand

Unfortunately, our [american] workplace rules are stuck in the seventies, when, out of a block of 10 houses, in more than half of them the husband went to work and the wife stayed home. Now on that same block almost eight of the wives work. That's one reason why I want equal pay for equal work, and why affordable day care, early childhood education, and universal pre-K are so important to me. — Kirsten Gillibrand

Childhood Education Quotes By Rory Bremner

I had an Edinburgh, middle-class childhood and a public school education. — Rory Bremner

Childhood Education Quotes By Tucker Elliot

I spent half my childhood trying to be like my dad. True for most boys, I think. It turns with adolescence. The last thing I wanted was to be like my dad. It took becoming a man to realize how lucky I'd been. It took a few hard knocks in life to make me realize the only thing my dad had ever wanted or worked for was to give me a chance at being better than him. — Tucker Elliot

Childhood Education Quotes By Shakira

Providing all Latin-American children with the education and early childhood development that they need is in the best interest of all, so it has to be a priority for all of us, not only the government and civil society, but also the business sector. — Shakira

Childhood Education Quotes By Maria Montessori

Early childhood education is the key to the betterment of society. — Maria Montessori

Childhood Education Quotes By Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The shape of my life is, of course, determined by many things; my background and childhood, my mind and its education, my conscience and its pressures, my heart and its desires. — Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Childhood Education Quotes By Jiddu Krishnamurti

The function of education, then, is to help you from childhood not to imitate anybody, but to be yourself all the time. And this is a most difficult thing to do: whether you are ugly or beautiful, whether you are envious or jealous, always to be what you are, but understand it. To be yourself is very difficult, because you think that what you are is ignoble, and that if you could only change what you are into something noble it would be marvellous; but that never happens. Whereas, if you look at what you actually are and understand it, then in that very understanding there is a transformation. So freedom lies, not in trying to become something different, nor in doing whatever you happen to feel like doing, nor in following the authority of tradition, of your parents, of your guru, but in understanding what you are from moment to moment. — Jiddu Krishnamurti

Childhood Education Quotes By Bernie Sanders

Every working family in America knows how hard it is today to find affordable childcare or early childhood education. — Bernie Sanders

Childhood Education Quotes By J. B. Pritzker

Early childhood education is an urgent educational, economic and moral imperative. Without it, we face a long-term national economic security crisis. — J. B. Pritzker

Childhood Education Quotes By Maria Montessori

We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child's spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life. — Maria Montessori

Childhood Education Quotes By Sri Mulyani Indrawati

Accounting for the unpaid care economy can drive progressive policies such as paid family leave, social security credits for early childcare, tax credits, and quality early childhood education. — Sri Mulyani Indrawati

Childhood Education Quotes By Corrie Ten Boom

A well-known psychologist once said, 'When a child reaches his third birthday, his parents will have given him half of all that they will ever be able to give him in the way of education. — Corrie Ten Boom

Childhood Education Quotes By Plato

Education and admonition commence in the first years of childhood, and last to the very end of life. — Plato

Childhood Education Quotes By Tim Kaine

We spend at least $5 for remedial education right now for every dollar we put in early childhood education. All the studies on early childhood education show this is going to pay for itself. — Tim Kaine

Childhood Education Quotes By David Brooks

Some children lack tools to see their course in the world in far-sighted ways. Just introducing school vouchers won't change that. You have to have nurse-home partnerships, early childhood education, mentoring programs and so on. People learn from people they love. — David Brooks

Childhood Education Quotes By Kate Atkinson

My father was an autodidact. It wasn't a middle-class house. Shopkeepers are aspirant. He paid for me to go to private school. He was denied an education - he had a horrible childhood. He got a place at a grammar school and wasn't allowed to go. — Kate Atkinson

Childhood Education Quotes By Josh Lanyon

Like true philosophers I've come to believe that religion is an illusion of childhood, outgrown after proper education. — Josh Lanyon

Childhood Education Quotes By Andrew Root

It actually may be that the shadows of the so-called middle-class utopia always cast heavily on children, particularly in their adolescence. And this is so because the middle class is the proprietor and perpetuator of the category of childhood; living within the economic advantage of not needing children to work (or serve as marriage pawns for continued nobility) leads to a conception of childhood innocence. The child is hidden from the world behind the structural walls of family and education. Middle-class parents take on a heavy burden of seeing it as their core vocation to protect and advance their children. But this projecting and advancing appears to always come with tension as the innocent middle-class child turns into the alien middle-class adolescent.[2] — Andrew Root

Childhood Education Quotes By Tess Gerritsen

I spent my childhood watching every scary movie that Hollywood ever made. And I think that gave me the best education for storytelling. It also made me want to reproduce the scary moments that I felt, sitting in a theater at the age of 5. — Tess Gerritsen

Childhood Education Quotes By Benjamin Hoff

The Eeyore Educational System sees childhood as a waste of time, a luxury that society cannot afford ... Put children in school at the earliest age possible; load them down with homework; take away their time, their creativity, their play, their power; then plug them into machines. — Benjamin Hoff

Childhood Education Quotes By Andy Hargreaves

A first class system of early childhood education is the hallmark of a caring and civilized society. — Andy Hargreaves

Childhood Education Quotes By Diana Lopez

Most everything I do revolves around tae kwon do. That said, I like to be a typical girl and go shopping. I have three nieces and nephews that I like to hang out with. I'm also finishing my last semester at the University of Houston, where I'm majoring in childhood education. — Diana Lopez

Childhood Education Quotes By Maeve Binchy

I have been luckier than anyone I know or even heard of. I had a very happy childhood, a good education, I enjoyed working as a teacher, journalist and author. I have loved a wonderful man for over 33 years, and I believe he loves me, too. — Maeve Binchy

Childhood Education Quotes By Will Durant

The elements of instruction . . . should be presented to the mind in childhood, but not with any compulsion; for a freeman should be a freeman too in the acquisition of knowledge . . . . Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be rather a sort of amusement; this will better enable you to find out the natural bent of the child (536). — Will Durant

Childhood Education Quotes By Darell Hammond

Only one in five children in the U.S. lives within walking distance of a park. Many more lack access to a quality early childhood education that provides ample time and space to play. — Darell Hammond

Childhood Education Quotes By James Heckman

The best way to improve the American workforce in the 21st century is to invest in early childhood education, to ensure that even the most disadvantaged children have the opportunity to succeed along side their more advantaged peers — James Heckman

Childhood Education Quotes By Thomas Sowell

Adolescence is a relatively recent thing in human history
a period of years between the constraints of childhood and the responsibilities of adulthood. This irresponsible period of adolescence is artificially extended by long years of education, much of it wasted on frivolities. Tenure extends adolescence even further for teachers and professors. — Thomas Sowell

Childhood Education Quotes By Rene Descartes

The chief cause of human errors is to be found in the prejudices picked up in childhood. — Rene Descartes

Childhood Education Quotes By Augusten Burroughs

But then, look at me. My brain is incorrectly formed, and I'm shaped like a tube. Plus, I'm an alcoholic, a "survivor" of childhood sexual abuse, was raised in a cult and have no education. So, really, if you think about it, the only thing that separates me from the guy with the stinky foot and no teeth is a book deal and some cologne. — Augusten Burroughs

Childhood Education Quotes By C.M. Stunich

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. — C.M. Stunich

Childhood Education Quotes By Carlina Rinaldi

We cannot live without meaning, that would preclude any sense of identity, any hope, any future. — Carlina Rinaldi

Childhood Education Quotes By Catharine Beecher

The physical and domestic education of daughters should occupy the principal attention of mothers, in childhood: and the stimulation of the intellect should be very much reduced. — Catharine Beecher

Childhood Education Quotes By Ryu Murakami

This was a factory, a sorting house. We were no different from dogs and pigs and cows: all of us were allowed to play when we were small, but then, just before reaching maturity, we were sorted and classified. Being a high school student was the first step toward becoming a domestic animal. — Ryu Murakami

Childhood Education Quotes By Albert Einstein

Play is the highest form of research. — Albert Einstein

Childhood Education Quotes By John Keegan

It's commonly said that people who've been ill in childhood and who've had an upset education never really regret that they do. It means that you don't look at the world in the way that other people do, and if you were inclined to be a writer, that's a help. — John Keegan

Childhood Education Quotes By Marlene Zuk

When it comes to childhood, therefore, it was reasonable to suggest that a prolonged period before independence was required once humans began to perform difficult tasks, like hunting or making pottery and baskets. Children could spend their time practicing these skills, which would better prepare them for success as adults in a hunter-gatherer society. In effect, this idea would mean that children are schooling themselves, and were doing so long before formal education was invented. — Marlene Zuk

Childhood Education Quotes By Paulo Freire

The more we become able to become a child again, to keep ourselves childlike, the more we can understand that because we love the world and we are open to understanding, to comprehension, that when we kill the child in us, we are no longer. — Paulo Freire

Childhood Education Quotes By Thomas L. Friedman

In my world, you don't get to call yourself "pro-life" and be against common-sense gun control - like banning public access to the kind of semiautomatic assault rifle, designed for warfare, that was used recently in a Colorado theater. You don't get to call yourself "pro-life" and want to shut down the Environmental Protection Agency, which ensures clean air and clean water, prevents childhood asthma, preserves biodiversity and combats climate change that could disrupt every life on the planet. You don't get to call yourself "pro-life" and oppose programs like Head Start that provide basic education, health and nutrition for the most disadvantaged children ... The term "pro-life" should be a shorthand for respect for the sanctity of life. But I will not let that label apply to people for whom sanctity for life begins at conception and ends at birth. What about the rest of life? Respect for the sanctity of life, if you believe that it begins at conception, cannot end at birth. — Thomas L. Friedman

Childhood Education Quotes By Barack Obama

We invest in early childhood education. We invest additional job training dollars. We make sure that we've got a strong research and development strategy so that we continue to innovate. Rebuilding our infrastructure, which we know will attract businesses. — Barack Obama

Childhood Education Quotes By Ronnie James Dio

My childhood was safe and sane. No abuse and no traumas. I was surrounded by a large and loving family who taught me the importance of hard work and a meaningful education. — Ronnie James Dio

Childhood Education Quotes By Alexis De Tocqueville

A man is born; his first years go by in obscurity amid the pleasures or hardships of childhood. He grows up; then comes the beginning of manhood; finally society's gates open to welcome him; he comes into contact with his fellows. For the first time he is scrutinized and the seeds of the vices and virtues of his maturity are thought to be observed forming in him.
This is, if I am not mistaken, a singular error.
Step back in time; look closely at the child in the very arms of his mother; see the external world reflected for the first time in the yet unclear mirror of his understanding; study the first examples which strike his eyes; listen to the first word which arouse with him the slumbering power of thought; watch the first struggles which he has to undergo; only then will you comprehend the source of the prejudices, the habits, and the passions which are to rule his life. — Alexis De Tocqueville

Childhood Education Quotes By Andre Gide

Laws and rules of conduct are for the state of childhood; education is an emancipation. — Andre Gide

Childhood Education Quotes By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

You must know that there is nothing higher and stronger and more wholesome and good for life in the future than some good memory, especially a memory of childhood, of home. People talk to you a great deal about your education, but some good, sacred memory, preserved from childhood, is perhaps the best education. If a man carries many such memories with him into life, he is safe to the end of his days, and if one has only one good memory left in one's heart, even that may sometime be the means of saving us. — Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Childhood Education Quotes By J. B. Pritzker

I focus on supporting high quality early childhood health care and education. By betting my resources on very young children, I know I'm making an investment that pays guaranteed dividends with a high rate of return. — J. B. Pritzker

Childhood Education Quotes By G.I. Gurdjieff

I also very well remember that on another occasion the father dean said: 'In order that at responsible age a man may be a real man and not a parasite, his education must without fail be based on the following ten principles. 'From early childhood there should be instilled in the child: Belief in receiving punishment for disobedience. Hope of receiving reward only for merit. Love of God - but indiference to the saints. Remorse of conscience for the ill-treatment of animals. Fear of grieving parents and teachers. Fearlessness towards devils, snakes and mice. Joy in being content merely with what one has. Sorrow at the loss of the goodwill of others. Patient endurance of pain and hunger. The striving early to earn one's bread. — G.I. Gurdjieff

Childhood Education Quotes By Michael Jackson

I am Peter Pan. He represents youth, childhood, never growing up, magic, flying. — Michael Jackson

Childhood Education Quotes By George Lakoff

Conservatives tend not to want to fund early childhood education. First, they see it as a government program to be destroyed. Second, they are concerned about what would be taught - perhaps not the subject matter of what would be taught in a strict father household. They want to be sure that children are taught a conservative way of looking at the world. Children — George Lakoff

Childhood Education Quotes By Alison Gopnik

We have lots of evidence that putting investments in early childhood education, even evidence from very hard-nosed economists, is one of the very best investments that the society can possibly make. And yet we still don't have public support for things like preschools. — Alison Gopnik

Childhood Education Quotes By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Sacred memory, preserved from childhood, is perhaps the best education. If a man stores up many such memories to take into life, then he is saved for his whole life. — Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Childhood Education Quotes By Tushar Upreti

Every step towards Education is important , Just like every lighting lamp remove a bit of darkness from this world — Tushar Upreti

Childhood Education Quotes By Doris Lessing

I was writing all my childhood. And I wrote two novels when I was 17, which were terrible. And I'm not sorry I threw them out. So, I wrote. I had to write. You know, the thing was, I had no education. — Doris Lessing

Childhood Education Quotes By Phyllis Schlafly

What masquerades as sex education is not education at all. It is selective propaganda which artificially encourages children to participate in adult sex, while it censors out the facts of life about the unhappy consequences. It is robbing children of their childhood. — Phyllis Schlafly

Childhood Education Quotes By Charlotte Bronte

I had thought him a man unlikely to be influenced by motives so commonplace in his choice of a wife; but the longer I considered the position, education, &c., of the parties, the less I felt justified in judging and blaming either him or Miss Ingram for acting in conformity to ideas and principles instilled into them, doubtless, from their childhood. — Charlotte Bronte

Childhood Education Quotes By MaryAnn F. Kohl

Art is a process, not a product. — MaryAnn F. Kohl

Childhood Education Quotes By Jim Henson

[Kids] don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are. — Jim Henson

Childhood Education Quotes By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

You are told a lot about your education, but some beautiful, sacred memory, preserved since childhood, is perhaps the best education of all. If a man carries many such memories into life with him, he is saved for the rest of his days. And even if only one good memory is left in our hearts, it may also be the instrument of our salvation one day. — Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Childhood Education Quotes By Trenton Lee Stewart

Nicholas Benedict did have an exceptional gift for knowing things (more exceptional, in fact, than most adults would have thought possible), and yet not even he could know that this next chapter was to be the most unusual-and most important-of his entire childhood. Indeed, the strange days that lay ahead would change him forever, though for now they had less substance than the mist through which he ran. — Trenton Lee Stewart

Childhood Education Quotes By John Quincy Adams

Human life, from the cradle to the grave, is a school. At every period of his existence man wants a teacher. His pilgrimage upon earth is but a term of childhood, in which he is to be educated for the manhood of a brighter world. As the child must be educated for manhood upon earth, so the man must be educated upon earth, for heaven; and finally that where the foundation is not laid in time, the superstructure can not rise for eternity. — John Quincy Adams

Childhood Education Quotes By David Almond

They climbed the wide stairways. Their footsteps echoed and echoed through the house. "What on earth will you be doing with something so large?" said Mum.
"I shall live in it with my servants, of course," said Mina. "Or I shall establish a school."
"A school, my lady?"
"Yes. A school for the writing of nonsense and the pursuit of extraordinary activities. — David Almond

Childhood Education Quotes By David Kherdian

What we learn in childhood is carved in stone. What we learn as adults is carved in ice. — David Kherdian

Childhood Education Quotes By Barack Obama

And when it comes to developing the high standards we need, it's time to stop working against our teachers and start working with them. Teachers don't go in to education to get rich. They don't go in to education because they don't believe in their children. They want their children to succeed, but we've got to give them the tools. Invest in early childhood education. Invest in our teachers and our children will succeed. — Barack Obama

Childhood Education Quotes By Richard Louv

An environment-based education movement
at all levels of education
will help students realize that school isn't supposed to be a polite form of incarceration, but a portal to the wider world. — Richard Louv

Childhood Education Quotes By Jonathan Kozol

I urge you to be teachers so that you can join with children as the co-collaborators in a plot to build a little place of ecstasy and poetry and gentle joy — Jonathan Kozol

Childhood Education Quotes By Erin Merryn

If someone would have talked in school about safe touch and unsafe touch, I believe I would have spoken up as a child and not been victimized over and over again for years, but that day never came, which is why my mission now is to protect children from the childhood I could not be protected from. — Erin Merryn

Childhood Education Quotes By Carlina Rinaldi

The child is not a citizen of the future; he (sic) is a citizen from the very first moment of life and also the most important citizen because he represents and brings the 'possible'...a bearer, here and now of rights, of values, of culture...It is our hiostorical responsibility not only to affirm this but the create cultural, social, political and educational contexts which are able to receive children and dialogue with their potential for constructing human rights. — Carlina Rinaldi

Childhood Education Quotes By Maria Montessori

The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn. — Maria Montessori

Childhood Education Quotes By Caroline Pratt

Childhood's work is learning, and it is in his play ... that the child works at his job. — Caroline Pratt

Childhood Education Quotes By Rebecca McNutt

The hardest part of being a Canadian kid is having to color in Nunavut with a crayon in school, hell on earth. — Rebecca McNutt

Childhood Education Quotes By Jiddu Krishnamurti

The function of education is to help you from childhood not to imitate anybody, but be yourself all the time. — Jiddu Krishnamurti

Childhood Education Quotes By Laurie Halse Anderson

Gym should be illegal. It's humiliating. — Laurie Halse Anderson

Childhood Education Quotes By Matt Damon

My mother is a professor of early childhood education. When I was two she would say she knew I was going to be an actor. — Matt Damon

Childhood Education Quotes By Robert Desnos

The stranger was still smiling. He transformed himself into a rose bush and entwined me. My Christian education meant that ever since childhood I have had a horror of vice and it was not without a quite understandable terror that I discerned the pleasure I felt in the embrace of this vigorous bush whose branches gradually mingled with my limbs, my hair and my looks. When one of its flowers came apart in my mouth, I could feel myself grasping the sorcerer in my arms in my turn. He was transformed into a torrent, and I was a barge, into desert and I was smoke, into a car and I was a road, into a man and I was a woman. 'What we are doing is very wrong,' he said and was off. — Robert Desnos

Childhood Education Quotes By Myles Horton

Curiosity is very important I think, and I think too much of education, starting with childhood education, is either designed to kill curiosity or it works out that way anyway. — Myles Horton

Childhood Education Quotes By Novalis

Every stage of education begins with childhood. That is why the most educated person on earth so much resembles a child. — Novalis

Childhood Education Quotes By Peter Campbell

The notion of children being "kindergarten ready" is a bizarre oxymoron. It's like saying you have to know how to play the piano before you can learn how to play the piano. — Peter Campbell

Childhood Education Quotes By Fyodor Dostoyevsky

People talk to you a great deal about your education, but some good, sacred memory, preserved from childhood, is perhaps the best education. — Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Childhood Education Quotes By Damian Marley

I grew up in uptown Jamaica; I went to a rich school. I was raised by my mother and my stepfather; they made sure education came before anything. I had a good childhood, grew up spending time with my bigger brothers and sisters. My people are good people. I was exposed to a lot of different kinds of people and culture. — Damian Marley

Childhood Education Quotes By Madeleine M. Kunin

Early childhood education begins early, even before birth. — Madeleine M. Kunin

Childhood Education Quotes By Reinhold Niebuhr

This conference on religious education seems to your humble servant the last word in absurdity. We are told by a delightful 'expert' that we ought not really teach our children about God lest we rob them of the opportunity of making their own discovery of God, and lest we corrupt their young minds by our own superstitions. If we continue along these lines the day will come when some expert will advise us not to teach our children the English language, since we rob them thereby of the possibility of choosing the German, French or Japanese languages as possible alternatives. Don't these good people realize that they are reducing the principle of freedom to an absurdity? — Reinhold Niebuhr

Childhood Education Quotes By Aristotle.

The habits we form from childhood make no small difference, but rather they make all the difference. — Aristotle.
