Education Inspiration

"The worst thing we can do for our students, the most insidious way of cheating them, the surest formula for failure is to ask little and expect little of our students."
-Ramon Cortines, former chancellor of public schools in New York City

"The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one."
- Malcolm Forbes
