Foundation Of Education Quotes By David Labaree

This is not a con game in the criminal sense, in which con artists deliberately dupe the suckers. Instead it's a form of good salesmanship, where the first principle is to sell yourself first. We sell ourselves on the value of education in solving social problems, and then we buy what we're selling. The whole thing rests on the uncertain foundation of our collective willingness to continue to believe the con. Whatever the problem, we continue to keep the faith in schools as the answer. — David Labaree

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Malcolm Gladwell

Education lays the foundation of a large portion of the causes of mental disorder — Malcolm Gladwell

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Henry David Thoreau

I love man-kind, but I hate the institutions of the dead unkind. Men execute nothing so faithfully as the wills of the dead, to the last codicil and letter.

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Tim Fargo

Great experiences are built on a foundation of bad experiences. — Tim Fargo

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Ian Graham

The Foundling Hospital was established in 1741 by a businessman and philanthropist named Thomas Coram as a children's home for the "education and maintenance of exposed and deserted young children." He was moved to establish it by the sight of abandoned babies and young children starving and dying on the streets of London. Today, part of the site the Foundling Hospital stood on is a children's playground near the world-famous Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. The Foundling Hospital itself has gone, but the charitable organization behind it still exists, now known as the Thomas Coram Foundation for Children, or simply Coram. — Ian Graham

Spiritual education is not a distinct and separate discipline; it is part and parcel of all types and levels of education, In fact, it is the very foundation on which a lasting edifice can be built. — Sathya Sai Baba

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Plutarch

For dealing with blessings which come to us from outside we need a firm foundation based on reason and education; without this foundation, people keep on seeking these blessings and heaping them up but can never satisfy the insatiable appetites of their souls. — Plutarch

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Carl H. Claudy

The genius of Freemasonry is not our Masonic buildings and temples or the trappings of our organizations. It is not our great charities or community activities. It is not our beautiful rituals or their teachings! It is the 'practice of Freemasonry' by the Freemasons. Yet we cannot practice that which we do not know or understand. Thus Masonic education is the foundation for our Fraternity.
Brother Carl H. Claudy in The Master's Book says, '.. one thing and only one thing a Masonic Lodge can give its members which they can get nowhere else in the world. That one thing is Masonry. — Carl H. Claudy

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Noah Webster

The education of youth should be watched with the most scrupulous attention.

The education of youth ... lays the foundations on which both law and gospel rest for success. — Noah Webster

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Arthur Schopenhauer

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Nelson Mandela

In judging our progress as individuals we tend to concentrate on external factors such as one's social position, influence and popularity, wealth and standard of education ... But internal factors may be even more crucial in assessing one's development as a human being. Honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, pure generosity, absence of vanity, readiness to serve others - qualities which are within easy reach of every soul - are the foundation of one's spiritual life — Nelson Mandela

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Linsey McGoey

frustration has flared up over the Common Core initiative, involving the implementation of national reading and maths standards for primary and secondary school children. The Gates Foundation played a central role in bringing the standards to fruition. Spending over $233 million to back the standards, the foundation dispersed money liberally to both conservative and progressive interest groups. The two major teachers' unions, the National Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers, each received large donations, as did the US Chamber of Commerce. Gates himself suggested that a benefit of the standards is that they open avenues towards increasing digital learning. In 2014, Microsoft announced it was partnering with Pearson to load Pearson's Common Core classroom material onto Microsoft's Surface tablet. Previously, the iPad was the classroom frontrunner; the Pearson partnership helps to make Microsoft more competitive. — Linsey McGoey

Foundation Of Education Quotes By J. William Fulbright

With respect to the creation of the program, I introduced the bill in September 1945, immediately after the end of the war with Japan, in August of that year. A number of considerations, of course, entered into my decision to introduce the bill, growing from my own experience as a Rhodes scholar and the experiences our government had had with the first Word War debts, [Herbert] Hoover's efforts in establishing the Belgian-American Education Foundation after World War I, [and] the Boxer Rebellion indemnity. — J. William Fulbright

Foundation Of Education Quotes By E.D. Hirsch Jr.

Our society cannot afford a two-tiered system in which the affluent have access to superior education, while everyone else is subjected to a dull and incoherent classroom experience. Academic excellence, educational equity, and fairness demand a strong foundation of knowledge for all learners. — E.D. Hirsch Jr.

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Soraya Diase Coffelt

Shockingly, too many of our children don't read to grade level. Studies show that if a child does not read to grade level by third grade, that child is likely to drop out of school. I believe the love of reading begins at home. We should do all we can to make sure that our children and grandchildren stay in school and graduate. Reading to grade level is an important foundation. — Soraya Diase Coffelt

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Queen Noor Of Jordan

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Yehudi Menuhin

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Benjamin Rush

The only foundation for a useful education in a republic is to be laid in religion. Without this there can be no virtue, and without virtue there can be no liberty; and liberty is the object and life of all republican governments ... We waste so much time and money in punishing crimes, and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity, by means of the Bible; for this divine book, above all others favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws. — Benjamin Rush

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Orson Scott Card

The education that prepared me was my general education classes, which I tried to avoid when I was a stupid undergraduate, but which gave me the foundation of general knowledge that makes a career as a writer possible. — Orson Scott Card

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Loren Weisman

Learn the rules and learn the game, before you start breaking the rules and changing the game.
Your education, experience and understanding of what was and what is, will give you the best foundation to change what will be. — Loren Weisman

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Sharon Salzberg

Contemplating the goodness within ourselves is a classical meditation, done to bring light, joy, and rapture to the mind. In contemporary times this practice might be considered rather embarrassing, because so often the emphasis is on all the unfortunate things we have done, all the disturbing mistakes we have made. Yet this classical reflection is not a way of increasing conceit. It is rather a commitment to our own happiness, seeing our happiness as the basis for intimacy with all of life. It fills us with joy and love for ourselves and a great deal of self-respect. Significantly, when we do metta practice, we begin by directing metta toward ourselves. This is the essential foundation for being able to offer genuine love to others — Sharon Salzberg

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Chris Matakas

Jiu Jitsu opened up doors in my mind that public education had bolted shut. In hindsight, I see just how superficial my thoughts had been prior to this art. It is no coincidence that my efforts in reading and writing have run parallel with this craft. I began training Jiu Jitsu at twenty-two, and at the time of this writing I am about to turn thirty. I have learned more in the past eight years than the previous twenty-two, and have no doubts that Jiu Jitsu opened up my mind in a way traditional organized education never could. Jiu Jitsu gave me a life when I didn't know how to live. It is the best thing I have ever done, and is the foundation upon which all I will do. — Chris Matakas

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Phyllis Bottome

In my early life, and probably even today, it is not sufficiently understood that a child's education should include at least a rudimentary grasp of religion, sex, and money. Without a basic knowledge of these three primary facts in a normal human being's life
subjects which stir the emotions, create events and opportunities, and if they do not wholly decide must greatly influence an individual's personality
no human being's education can have a safe foundation. — Phyllis Bottome

Foundation Of Education Quotes By George Washington

The best means of forming a manly, virtuous, and happy people will be found in the right education of youth. Without this foundation, every other means, in my opinion, must fail. — George Washington

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Failure is only an experience. Experience is the foundation of any success. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Laurence Sterne

The proper education of poor children [is] the ground-work of almost every other kind of charity ... Without this foundation firstlaid, how much kindnessis unavoidably cast away? — Laurence Sterne

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Abdu'l- Baha

The education and training of children is among the most meritorious acts of humankind and draweth down the grace and favour of the All-Merciful, for education is the indispensable foundation of all human excellence and alloweth man to work his way to the heights of abiding glory. If a child be trained from his infancy, he will, through the loving care of the Holy Gardener, drink in the crystal waters of the spirit and of knowledge, like a young tree amid the rilling brooks. And certainly he will gather to himself the bright rays of the Sun of Truth, and through its light and heat will grow ever fresh and fair in the garden of life. — Abdu'l- Baha

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Bill Cosby

Public education is a good foundation on which to build a better life for each of us. And if we want to prove to these children who never made the mess in the first place that education is worth the trouble, our schools have to inspire them so they can do what they ought to do. — Bill Cosby

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Tinie Tempah

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Research Foundation Of CFA Institute

Intelligent product design and oversight can be an effective substitute for consumer financial education. Such — Research Foundation Of CFA Institute

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Kytka Hilmar-Jezek

Labels are OK for marketing something, but does the Unschooling philosophy of life need any marketing? No. In so many ways, Unschooling stands for a refusal of marketing and a rejection of any consumerist approach to learning.
Your learning IS your life, not something you purchase subject by subject in the big education supermarket to hang on the wall like a diploma or certificate. Unschooling by its nature does not need to set up an 'Institute of Unschooling' or an 'Unschooling Foundation': that would be the purest contradiction-in-terms, to institutionalize the very practice that most undermines institutionalization! — Kytka Hilmar-Jezek

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Rob Machado

I've always been a big supporter of the Surfrider Foundation. I started my own foundation, Rob Machado Foundation, which focuses on environmental education for the little people of the world. — Rob Machado

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Chris Matakas

To know our values is to have a foundation on which to build a great life. Our environment and education will play a large part in influencing our formulation of this world view, but is ultimately ourselves that have the final say. We must decide what we value, and then live accordingly. After all, in the eyes of the world we could achieve great success, but if our actions do not coincide with what we ourselves truly deem worthy, we will find no peace. — Chris Matakas

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Catharine Beecher

The ability to secure an independent livelihood and honorable employ suited to her education and capacities is the only true foundation of the social elevation of woman, even in the very highest classes of society. While she continues to be educated only to be somebody's wife, and is left without any aim in life till that somebody either in love, or in pity, or in selfish regard at last grants her the opportunity, she can never be truly independent. — Catharine Beecher

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Abhijit Naskar

Education is the foundation of all human endeavors. It is the most noble of all the elements of human consciousness. — Abhijit Naskar

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Ronald Reagan

I deplore the tendency, in some institutions, to go directly toward training for a trade or profession or something and ignoring the liberal arts. It is the foundation of education. — Ronald Reagan

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Every experience lays the foundation for the ultimate success. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Tim Scott

As a kid who failed out of high school as a freshman, I know firsthand and personally that sense of hopelessness and just being - drifting in the wrong direction, having really no hope. And being able to harness that frustration was incredibly valuable in my life. That's one of the reasons I focus so consistently on the foundation of education, because it helps to eviscerate those things that - unemployment, high jobless rates, poverty. — Tim Scott

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Narissa Doumani

Understanding is the assassin of bigotry, and lays a strong foundation upon which to build a tolerant society. — Narissa Doumani

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Irina Bokova

Education brings sustainability to all the development goals, and literacy is the foundation of all learning. It provides individuals with the skills to understand the world and shape it, to participate in democratic processes and have a voice, and also to strengthen their cultural identity. — Irina Bokova

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Neil Postman

Every television program must be a complete package in itself. No previous knowledge is to be required. There must not be even a hint that learning is hierarchical, that it is an edifice constructed on a foundation. The learner must be allowed to enter at any point without prejudice. This is why you shall never hear or see a television program begin with the caution that if the viewer has not seen the previous programs, this one will be meaningless. Television is a nongraded curriculum and excludes no viewer for any reason, at any time. In other words, in doing away with the idea of sequence and continuity in education, television undermines the idea that sequence and continuity have anything to do with thought itself. — Neil Postman

Foundation Of 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

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Jack White

I think you can't really escape any kind of spiritual education as a child, whether it's New Age or Judaism or Buddhism or whatever it is. You can't escape it, even if you completely disagree with it, you still have it as a foundation that you base things off of. — Jack White

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Brad Henry

No other investment yields as great a return as the investment in education. An educated workforce is the foundation of every community and the future of every economy. — Brad Henry

Foundation Of Education Quotes By George W. Bush

Too many of our children cannot read. Reading is the building block, and it must be the foundation for education reform. — George W. Bush

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Alicia Vikander

I do work very hard. I have been very colored by that education. I spent six days a week, seven hours a day training. That will always be the foundation of my work. — Alicia Vikander

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Alfred North Whitehead

The foundation of reverence is this perception, that the present holds within itself the complete sum of existence, backwards and forwards, that whole amplitude of time, which is eternity. — Alfred North Whitehead

Foundation Of Education Quotes By James T. Hubbell

Foundation Of Education Quotes By David Brewster

Prophetic of infidel times, and indicating the unsoundness of our general education, 'The Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation', has started into public favour with a fair chance of poisoning the fountains of science, and sapping the foundations of religion. — David Brewster

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Alan Autry

You don't need a city charter to know that education is the foundation of any community. — Alan Autry

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Tom Vilsack

The president identified three key strategies to build that lasting prosperity: innovation, investment, and education. — Tom Vilsack

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Thomas Jefferson

The mass of our citizens may be divided into two classes
the laboring and the learned. The laboring will need the first grade of education to qualify them for their pursuits and duties; the learned will need it as a foundation for further acquirements. — Thomas Jefferson

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Joan Konner

Consider children as a beat. Clearly not an institution of power, children don't vote and they don't pass taxes. They have no money, and they don't buy newspapers or watch the news on television. Consequently, children are one of the most neglected segments of society in the news, except as a subtopic of other power beats such as education, family, and crime. Children are in serious trouble in this society, which means the foundation of our society is in trouble, which means the future is in trouble, and that is news. — Joan Konner

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Alan Greenspan

To succeed, you will soon learn, as I did, the importance of a solid foundation in the basics of education - literacy, both verbal and numerical, and communication skills. — Alan Greenspan

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Diogenes Of Sinope

The foundation of every state is the education of its youth. — Diogenes Of Sinope

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Asne Seierstad

Through the book, I want to give something back to the community from which it sprang. My royalties for this book in Norway are being donated in full to the 'En av oss' (One of Us) foundation. The foundation's statutes allow for the money to be distributed to a wide range of causes nationally and internationally, in the areas of development, education, sport, culture and the environment. I have chosen to let those who contributed most to the book decide which causes will receive support. I think that would be in the spirit of their children. — Asne Seierstad

Foundation Of Education Quotes By D. A. Fisher

From the Scriptures we find basic truths that may serve as the foundation of our teaching of history. The first basic truth is that God is in control of history. God's control may take the form of caring, governing, protecting, sustaining, and preserving. He exercises His will through divine superintendence or by divine intervention — D. A. Fisher

Foundation Of Education Quotes By James Heckman

Foundation Of Education Quotes By Benjamin Franklin

The good Education of Youth has been esteemed by wise Men in all Ages, as the surest Foundation of the Happiness both of private Families and of Common-wealths. Almost all Governments have therefore made it a principal Object of their Attention, to establish and endow with proper Revenues, such Seminaries of Learning, as might supply the succeeding Age with Men qualified to serve the Publick with Honour to themselves, and to their Country. — Benjamin Franklin
