Did you know america ranks the lowest

Did you know America ranks the lowest in education but the highest in drug use?  It’s nice to be number one, but we can fix that.  All we need to do is start the war on education.  If it’s anywhere near as successful as our war on drugs, in no time we’ll all be hooked on phonics.  ~Leighann LordHAA

Itll be a great day when education

It’ll be a great day when education gets all the money it wants and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy bombers.  ~Author unknown, quoted in You Said a Mouthful, Ronald D. Fuchs, ed.

To me education is a leading out

To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil’s soul.  To Miss Mackay it is a putting in of something that is not there, and that is not what I call education.  I call it intrusion.  ~Muriel Spark, The Prime of Miss Jean BrodiePACP

I think everyone should go to college

I think everyone should go to college and get a degree and then spend six months as a bartender and six months as a cabdriver.  Then they would really be educated.  ~Al McGuirePACP

The more that learn to read the

The more that learn to read the less learn how to make a living.  That’s one thing about a little education.  It spoils you for actual work.  The more you know the more you think somebody owes you a living.  ~Will RogersPACP

The aim of education should be to

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think – rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.  ~Bill Beattie

Education is what remains after one has

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.  ~Albert EinsteinFD; Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten. ~B.F. Skinner, PACP

Every time you stop a school will

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail.  What you gain at one end you lose at the other.  It’s like feeding a dog on his own tail.  It won’t fatten the dog.  ~Mark Twain

If a man is fool you dont

If a man is a fool, you don’t train him out of being a fool by sending him to university.  You merely turn him into a trained fool, ten times more dangerous.  ~Desmond BagleyPACP

Who knows the difference between education and

Who knows the difference between education and training?  For those of you with daughters, would you rather have them take sex education or sex training?  Need I say more?  ~Dennis Rubin

The founding fathers provided jails called schools

The founding fathers… provided jails called schools, equipped with tortures called education.  School is where you go between when your parents can’t take you and industry can’t take you.  ~John Updike, The Centaur, 1963LCD

There is only one education and it

There is only one Education, and it has only one goal:  the freedom of the mind.  Anything that needs an adjective, be it civics education, or socialist education, or Christian education, or whatever-you-like education, is not education, and it has some different goal.  The very existence of modified "educations" is testimony to the fact that their proponents cannot bring about what they want in a mind that is free.  An "education" that cannot do its work in a free mind, and so must "teach" by homily and precept in the service of these feelings and attitudes and beliefs rather than those, is pure and unmistakable tyranny.  ~Richard Mitchell, The Underground Grammarian, September 1982

Education aims to give you a boost

Education aims to give you a boost up the ladder of knowledge.  Too often, it just gives you a cramp on one of its rungs.  ~Martin H. FischerFFM

Intelligence appears to be the thing that

Intelligence appears to be the thing that enables a man to get along without education.  Education enables a man to get along without the use of his intelligence.  ~Albert Edward WiggamPACP

Nations have recently been led to borrow

Nations have recently been led to borrow billions for war; no nation has ever borrowed largely for education.  Probably, no nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization.  We must make our choice; we cannot have both.  ~Abraham Flexner
