Top Educational Change Quotes

Educational Change Quotes By Wendy Kopp

Ending educational inequality is going to require systemic change and a long-term, sustained effort. There are no shortcuts and no silver bullets. — Wendy Kopp

Educational Change Quotes By Tom Krause

When school districts are measured by how much confidence, worth and hope their graduates have acquired while in school, when the role of education becomes more about nurturing students and a love for learning than standardized test scores, when the term "honor" student stands more for a child's character than than their grades, then schools will again take their role as a place for effective change in America. Until then education will continue to be run by paper chasing, pride driven central office administrators and educational bureaucrats trying to prove their worth to politicians who don't even know our kids. Let our teachers care, let our children thrive. Let our teachers teach. — Tom Krause

Educational Change Quotes By Johnny B. Truant

Why do we look to everyone else to see what to do? Why don't we understand that they're all as lost and scared as we are? Why do we look at a random consensus, shaped by opinions and powers that drift like dunes, as an absolute truth? If "normal" could change tomorrow, why are we such slaves to it? And where has "normal" gotten us, anyway? We live in a society that can't stop pollution or environmental destruction, that can't raise educational standards, can't stay healthy and non-obese, can't balance a budget, has no sense of fiscal responsibility, is in an economic tailspin, and is rife with crime and murder and violence. Most people in this "normal" society of ours begin sitting still in a room for six to eight hours beginning in childhood. They continue that for twelve years and then begin sitting still in a different room for another forty years, at which point they hope to retire and sit still in a chair in front of the TV until they die. — Johnny B. Truant

Educational Change Quotes By Douglas B. Reeves

The central challenge for educational systems around the world is the substitution of effectiveness for popularity. — Douglas B. Reeves

Educational Change Quotes By Richard R. Valencia

Presently, many behavioral and social scientists hold the deficit thinking model in disrepute - arguing that it is unduly simplistic, lacks empirical verification, more ideological than scientific, grounded in classism and racism, and offers counterproductive educational prescriptions for school success. However, because deficit thinking is so protean, taking different forms to conform to what is politically acceptable at the moment, and while the popularity of different revisions may change, it never ceases to be important in determining school policy and practice. Given — Richard R. Valencia

Educational Change Quotes By Mark Bradford

I fell through the holes in the educational system. But education is still a way to change a life. — Mark Bradford

Educational Change Quotes By Marc Edwards

We teach aspirational ethics. What I teach my students is, You're born heroic. I go into these animal studies, and heroism is actually in our nature. What you have to do is make sure that the system doesn't change you, that our educational system doesn't teach you to be willfully blind and to forget your aspirations, because that's the default position. — Marc Edwards

Educational Change Quotes By Frances Dunn Butterfoss

Our communities basically want the same things - safe, clean environments; affordable, adequate housing and transportation; educational opportunities; accessible, quality health care; meaningful work at a fair wage; and equitable services for everyone. So, in the spirit of warmth and energy that our campfire metaphor brings, I invite each of you to be the spark that ignites your community to be safer, healthier, and fairer - and fired up for change. — Frances Dunn Butterfoss

Educational Change Quotes By Benjamin Janey

We'd like to believe that by discussing what has occurred will change things. Until now, here's a mental illness that must be dealt with by going to the root. — Benjamin Janey

Educational Change Quotes By Patricia Hill Collins

The role model approach to social change is no substitute for challenging unjust employment practices, educational policies and housing. — Patricia Hill Collins

Educational Change Quotes By John Hume

In my opinion, what changed the situation eventually - and, of course, it took a lot of time to change it, things like that don't change in a week or a fortnight - was the new educational system. — John Hume

Educational Change Quotes By Ben Macintyre

Libraries are not just for reading in, but for sociable thinking, exploring, exchanging ideas and falling in love. They were never silent. Technology will not change that, for even in the starchiest heyday of Victorian self-improvement, libraries were intended to be meeting places of the mind, recreational as well as educational. — Ben Macintyre

Educational Change Quotes By Michel De Montaigne

As for our pupils talk, let his virtue and his sense of right and wrong shine through it and have no guide but reason. Make him understand that confessing an error which he discovers in his own argument even when he alone has noticed it is an act of justice and integrity, which are the main qualities he pursues; stubbornness and rancour are vulgar qualities, visible in common souls whereas to think again, to change one's mind and to give up a bad case on the heat of the argument are rare qualities showing strength and wisdom. — Michel De Montaigne

Educational Change Quotes By Daniel Marques

Most adults suffer from difficulties in achieving the truth, because social and educational conditionings have blocked the mind from accessing it. In psychology, this process is called crystallization, and explains the inability to change over the years. — Daniel Marques

Educational Change Quotes By Hamilton Wright Mabie

The question for each man to settle is not what he would do if he had means, time, influence and educational advantages; the question is what he will do with the things he has. The moment a young man ceases to dream or to bemoan his lack of opportunities and resolutely looks his conditions in the face, and resolves to change them, he lays the corner-stone of a solid and honorable success. — Hamilton Wright Mabie

Educational Change 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

Educational Change Quotes By Krishnamurti

Systems, whether educational or political, are not changed mysteriously; they are transformed when there is a fundamental change in ourselves. — Krishnamurti

Educational Change Quotes By Andy Hargreaves

Teachers create and transform energy. They are the dynamos of educational change. — Andy Hargreaves

Educational Change Quotes By Salman Khan

Entire industries and some of our very largest professions depend on the persistence of our current system. Other social institutions - like giant publishers and test-prep companies - are synched to its workings. A certain teaching method implies certain goals and certain tests. The tests, in turn, have a serious impact on hiring practices and career advancement. Human nature being what it is, those who prosper under a given system tend to become supporters of that system. Thus the powerful tend to have a bias toward the status quo; our educational customs tend to perpetuate themselves, and because they interconnect with so many other aspects of our culture, they are extraordinarily difficult to change. — Salman Khan

Educational Change Quotes By Sahndra Fon Dufe

I wrote this book for the Nelson Mandela's of our communities who are willing to stand up for change and people who are oppressed or suppressed from fulfilling their life's purpose — Sahndra Fon Dufe

Educational Change Quotes By Galit Breen

Education is our path to change. Minds and hearts are brightened via learning. — Galit Breen

Educational Change Quotes By Seth Godin

The only purpose of customer service is to change feelings. — Seth Godin

Educational Change Quotes By Alvin Toffler

It would be a mistake to assume that the present day educational system is unchanging. On the contrary, it is undergoing rapid change. But much of this change is no more than an attempt to refine the existent machinery, making it ever more efficient in pursuit of obsolete goals. — Alvin Toffler

Educational Change Quotes By Tony Benn

Change from below, the formulation of demands from the populace to end unacceptable injustice, supported by direct action, has played a far larger part in shaping British democracy than most constitutional lawyers, political commentators, historians or statesmen have ever cared to admit. Direct action in a democratic society is fundamentally an educational exercise. — Tony Benn

Educational Change Quotes By David Edward

We came to recognize that our initial thinking about the keys to educational reform was wrong. The key variables weren't pedagogical. They weren't financial. They weren't curricular. They weren't research. They weren't any of the usual things we've always talked about as the engines of change. The variables were deeply emotional and cultural. — David Edward

Educational Change Quotes By Iyanla Vanzant

Plan your hours to be productive ... Plan your weeks to be educational ... Plan your years to be purposeful. Plan your life to be an experience of growth. Plan to change. Plan to grow. — Iyanla Vanzant

Educational Change Quotes By Neal Ascherson

The very word "change" has changed. When I was young
and not just because I was young
we looked forward with confident impatience to change. Planned, controlled, beneficent change would continue to clear slums, sweep up the remains of empire, raise living and educational standards, tidy away
firmly but kindly
the last aboriginals who still raved about martial glory or the pride of wealth. Now, as it seems to me, change is set almost exclusively in the minor key, change seen overwhelmingly as loss. — Neal Ascherson

Educational Change Quotes By Claudia Goldin

The three topics of this book - technological change, education, and inequality - are intricately related in a kind of 'race.' During the first three-quarters of the twentieth century, the rising supply of educated workers outstripped the increased demand caused by technological advances. Higher real incomes were accompanied by lower inequality. But during the last two decades of the century the reverse was the case, and there was sharply rising inequality. Put another way, in the first half of the century, education raced ahead of technology, but later in the century, technology raced ahead of educational gains. The skill bias of technology did not change much across the century, nor did its rate of change. Rather, the sharp rise in inequality was largely due to an educational slowdown. — Claudia Goldin

Educational Change Quotes By Andy Hargreaves

Leadership is often the afterthought of educational change. — Andy Hargreaves

Educational Change Quotes By John Cage

Valda said that if you change your residence every six months you can legally free your children from compulsory education. — John Cage

Educational Change Quotes By Rigoberta Menchu

Instead of giving a rifle to somebody, build a school; instead of giving a rifle, build a community with adequate services. Instead of giving a rifle, develop an educational system that is not about conflict and violence, but one that promotes respect for values, for life, and respect for one's elders. This requires a huge investment. Yet if we can invest in a different vision of peaceful coexistence, I think we can change the world, because every problem has a nonviolent answer. — Rigoberta Menchu

Educational Change Quotes By Frank Herbert

Educational bureaucracies dull a child's questing sensitivity. The young must be dampened down. Never let them know how good they can be. That brings change. Spend lots of committee time talking about how to deal with exceptional students. Don't spend any time dealing with how the conventional teacher feels threatened by emerging talents and squelches them because of a deep-seated desire to feel superior and safe in a safe environment. — Frank Herbert

Educational Change Quotes By Magda Gerber

I have spent my adult life trying to figure out why parents and society put themselves into a race
what's the hurry? I keep trying to convey the pleasure every parent and teacher could feel while observing, appreciating and enjoying what the infant is doing. This attitude would change our educational climate from worry to joy. — Magda Gerber

Educational Change Quotes By Terry Leahy

Follow the customer, if they change, we change. — Terry Leahy

Educational Change Quotes By Shaheen Mistri

A greater national focus on the criticality of educational equity is needed in order to mobilize the masses and invite everyone to be a part of the solution. Only when every person on the street realizes the role she can play in this movement, can we begin to change the conversations around education. — Shaheen Mistri

Educational Change Quotes By Andy Hargreaves

Although everyone wants to change the teacher, it's time for the agents of educational reform to change themselves. — Andy Hargreaves

Educational Change Quotes By Shawn Achor

[It's] the lens through which your brain views the world that shapes your reality. And if we can change the lens, not only can we change your happiness, we can change every single educational and business outcome at the same time. — Shawn Achor

Educational Change Quotes By Glenn Beck

Late 2011, the U.S. Department of Education made a historic change to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act to allow schools to release student records to third-party organizations without parental consent. — Glenn Beck

Educational Change Quotes By J.Z. Colby

One thing I can guarantee, is that the world will never change itself because of our weaknesses. In fact, it has ways of actually becoming more dangerous when we approach it with a bad attitude. — J.Z. Colby

Educational Change Quotes By Bob Smith

If the goal of conservatives is to discourage young people from having sex, they should change their strategy and push to make comprehensive sexual education compulsory. Our educational system has proved that if a subject is taught in a boring enough manner, Americans will make every effort to avoid it for the rest of their lives. If homosexuality was taught in the same manner as trigonometry, even most gay people would have no use for it after graduation. — Bob Smith

Educational Change Quotes By Michel De Montaigne

Teach him a certain refinement in sorting out and selecting his arguments, with an affection for relevance and so for brevity. Above all let him be taught to throw down his arms and surrender to truth as soon as he perceives it, whether the truth is born at his rival's doing or within himself from some change in his ideas. — Michel De Montaigne

Educational Change Quotes By Kenneth Keniston

Television thus illustrates the mixed blessings of technological change in American society. It is a new medium, promising extraordinary benefits: great educational potential, a broadening of experience, enrichment of daily life, entertainment for all. But it teaches children the uses of violence, offers material consumption as the answer to life's problems, sells harmful products, habituates viewers to constant stimulation, and undermines family interaction and other forms of learning such as play and reading. — Kenneth Keniston

Educational Change Quotes By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

One great book can change the perspective and understanding of a whole nation — Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Educational Change Quotes By Ray Anderson

One of the biggest things that needs to change is the educational system. Universities are still teaching a system to students that destroys the biosphere. — Ray Anderson

Educational Change Quotes By Geoffrey Vickers

The men and women of England who abolished slavery, created the educational system, or gave women the vote were not acting on the hypotheses of what the voters wanted. They were afire with faith in what people ought to want and in the end they persuaded their lethargic compatriots to give them enough support to warrant a change. — Geoffrey Vickers

Educational Change Quotes By Seymour Sarason

Let's face it: Serious self-scrutiny has not been one of our notable characteristics. We are far more aware of what we want to change in others than we are of how we need to change. Salvation for our educational ills is only secondarily "out there." Primarily it will have to come from within an educational community willing to say that we have met the enemy and it is us. — Seymour Sarason
