Thoughts on Education

“Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be. ” -Rita Pierson

I could end this post right here with that quote. Rita Pierson’s quote completely defines my thoughts on education. But, it seems like a little more is required and my eyes aren’t up to me jumping up on my soap box and letting it all out so here are a few more favorite quotes on education:

  • “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. ” -Nelson Mandela
  • “You will either step forward into growth, or you will step backward into safety.” -Abraham Maslow
  • “Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” Margaret Mead
  • “Play is the highest form of research. ” -Albert Einstein
  • “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” – John Dewey

Have a great day!
