School was very important. But I needed to watch basketball.
I’ve been a fan of The Rock ever since he first came to wrestling. Every time I went to school, I talked about The Rock. So when I finally got to meet him I couldn’t believe it!

I’m very proud of all my children. They all have Christian families; they read the Bible; they pray; the kids go to Sunday school; they know the Ten Commandments by heart. That’s my greatest honor, and I couldn’t do anything to glorify God that could surpass that. That’s very meaningful.

I was in the Woodrow Wilson School of international relations and public policy at Princeton. You have to apply to get in, and I did not originally get in. I lobbied really hard and called many people. I just would not take no for an answer.
I liked school, but I used to dread those moments when the teacher would call me up to give an oral report. I forced myself to deal with it and not dwell on the class in front of me – to keep a straight face, give the report and concentrate on getting it right. That’s normally how I perform. That’s how I am.

I did grow up in Los Angeles. I actually didn’t start acting until I was sixteen, so I was very removed from the Hollywood scene. I had always been in my school plays, but my mom and dad wanted to keep me out of the business until I was old enough to know who I was and not let anyone change me.
I had a terrible education. I attended a school for emotionally disturbed teachers.

I think private school is much better at customer service and making the parents feel better, especially in Los Angeles. It’s almost like a spa for the parents where you drop your kids off, where they give you a beautifully baked thing and let the parents write their own newsletter about global warming.
The prices are ridiculous… I don’t see how people can go back and forth to work or to school. How can we afford the gas?

I went to a Steiner School, which is very small and nurturing and creative, so I felt like I was in an environment where I could mature.

I went to school at the University of Rhode Island and pursued a degree in journalism, which is a little bit ironic.

I was not popular in school, and I was definitely not a ladies‘ man. And I had a very painful adolescence, because it was all very strange to me.

Geddy Lee and I went to the same grade school. He moved away when we were still young, but I remember him like I do all my friends from back then. Then in 1982, Dave Thomas and I were approached to do a record as the McKenzie Brothers on Anthem Records, the same label that Rush was on.
I went to NYU undergrad, then went to AFI for grad school.
When I was in 7th grade, we were all given an exam. It was science and math, and the boys who did well were skipped ahead so that when they got to be juniors or seniors in high school they would be able to go to the local community college and take calculus and physics there. And I wasn’t skipped ahead.
I think the kids in school that laughed at the clothes that we wore and the house that we lived in, and then my mother had to cut hair… I think that was a good motivator. Every time they laughed at me, they just built a fire, and there was only one way to put it out – to try and show ’em I was as good as they were.
A Sunday school is a prison in which children do penance for the evil conscience of their parents.
Marriage is a school itself. Also, having children. Becoming a father changed my whole life. It taught me as if by revelation.

I really am at a place where I think we need to feed every child at school for free and feed them a real school lunch that’s sustainable and nutritious and delicious.

I don’t know if anyone knows if they’re ever any good, but I went to drama school in Scotland, in a classical acting course, and my first year, I remember one of my tutors telling me that I couldn’t act, and I should give up and all this sort of thing, and then, they cast me as Romeo in ‘Romeo and Juliet.’
I didn’t go to school a lot.
When you’re picking up and moving, it does create… well, I can sleep anywhere, which is really useful, it turns out, on movie sets. But what it really does is teach you how to adapt and change and fit into a new group or school, and that really is a lot like turning up to a new movie project and finding your place.
I wasn’t brought up with any religion at all. At school and in my early 20s, I read every religious text I could get my hands on – Buddhist scriptures, Hindu texts, the Qur’an, and the Bible.

I was always the guy getting kicked out of my classes at school for having an attitude problem.

My parents were immigrants who started a nursery as a way to get us kids through school. I learned around the dinner table about customer service and cash flow and paying bills.
My mom told us never to reveal that we were Shia in school. You would find out that some other kid was Shiite, and you would whisper, ‘Hey,’ or you would see someone at the mosque, and you’d be like, ‘Hey, that kid’s Shiite!’ There was a lot of tension, a lot of violence in Karachi between Shiites and Sunnis.
All of my friends who have younger siblings who are going to college or high school – my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program.

I was for two years a pupil at the Model School in Fort street which was then conducted upon the Irish national system, and if any special religious instruction was given in connection with that system, I do not recollect it.
I loved Catholic school. I didn’t like being beeped at by old pervs at the gas station because I was wearing a plaid skirt, though. It’s like, do you think I’m going to stop and give you my phone number?
I think of it as a good opportunity to let, in particular, school kids know that this job and other interesting jobs in science and engineering are open to anyone who works hard in school and gets a good education and studies math and science. And that it’s not just for a select group of people.
My whole life, people have doubted me. My mom did. People told me in high school I’m too short and not fast enough to play basketball. They didn’t know my story. Because if they did, they’d know that anything is possible.

I went to school, I went to college. I know how to read. Even though I lack common sense sometimes, I am book smart.

I was born in Niagara Falls. The high school I went to had 500 kids and the school didn’t have a lot of money. The town itself was whatever. It was a good place to grow up. It was a blessing that I grew up there, because I got to find myself at a young age.

My mum‘s always had big aspirations because I’m an academic. I always got good grades at school. GCSEs were just a breeze for me.

The curriculum of the school did not neglect India’s cultural, analytical and scientific heritage, but was very involved also with the rest of the world.

I was a musical theater kid in high school.

In some parts of the world, students are going to school every day. It’s their normal life. But in other part of the world, we are starving for education… it’s like a precious gift. It’s like a diamond.
You can have anything you want, but not everything. If it was really important to spend an afternoon at my daughter’s school, I had to think, how was I going to organize my life to do that? How could I become more efficient? I always tried to put my priorities on the table, personal and professional, and work around them.
In school, many of us procrastinate and then successfully cram for tests. We get the grades and degrees we need to get the jobs we want, even if we fail to get a good general education.
My history is pretty different from the history of most professors. I was a high school dropout. I dropped out and became a science fiction writer.

Having been unpopular in high school is not just cause for book publications.
I want to travel the world – like Egypt. I love history. That’s my favorite subject at school. From the building of the pyramids to… King Tut. Their way of working without technology. I find all that fascinating.
The school is the last expenditure upon which America should be willing to economize.
That’s what the Affordable Care Act is all about. It’s about filling the gaps in employer-based care so that when we lose a job, or go back to school, or start that new business, we’ll still have coverage.
Within our culture, every school has a swimming pool. We lived on the coast. People swam in the surf. It’s a very sporty nation and at that particular time anyone who had an artistic bent was very much an outsider. So if you liked reading or ideas or playing the piano then your dad viewed you as a sissy, basically.
My natural accent is American. I chose to speak with a U.K. accent when I was about to enter the final year at drama school in London. I was going to try to find a way to stay in the U.K. after I finished college and could not imagine trying to live and get work there with an American accent.
I wanted to be a veterinarian and go to school in Boston. It didn’t quite work out that way, and I ended up joining the Navy as a suggestion of my big brother. It was really awesome – and I didn’t realize it at the time, -but provided a lot of leadership and followership teamwork opportunities.

I don’t come from a family that had the money to put me through college, so I left school with $100,000 in student loan debt.
To this day I get mail from women who say, I went to law school because of your song. But I would hate to think out of the wide spectrum of things I have done in my career, that’s all I would be remembered for.
My fastest time in high school was a 4:29 mile. I think cross-country has something to do with my longevity in my business. When you’re in an eight-mile race, you never give up.
We knew we were different, even from our elementary school days. We were the class clowns; we engaged with people differently. We knew there was something out there that was meant for us.

It will take 150 years or seven generations to heal the wound of the residential school.

My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors.
I’m of the school of thought where, if you can’t sort something out for yourself, no one can help you. Rehab is great for some people but not others.
The standard high school curriculum traditionally has been focused towards physics and engineering. So calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra have always been the most emphasized, and for good reason – these are very important.
I’m a Christian. I go to church when I can. I was raised Baptist. I went to a Lutheran school. I’m a nondenominational practicing Christian. I have a lot of faith.
I went to art school in Chicago for a year at Columbia College. I had this whole master plan of getting into sustainable development and green architecture and construction, so I wanted to go to business school and then get my masters in construction and development.
I am from Mumbai. I studied at the Utpal Sanghvi School at Juhu and then went to the Mithibai College. I come from a business family, and I am the only son.
I first met the subject of X-ray diffraction of crystals in the pages of the book W. H. Bragg wrote for school children in 1925, ‘Concerning the Nature of Things.’
In this outward and physical ceremony we attest once again to the inner and spiritual strength of our Nation. As my high school teacher, Miss Julia Coleman, used to say: ‘We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles.’
After my ski jumping career finished, I went back to school to study law, and now I travel between five to 20 times a year doing after-dinner speaking, motivational talks, appearances, openings, TV and radio shows.
I want my kids to be able to live comfortable and go to school and to be into sports.
My mom and I have always been really close. She’s always been the friend that was always there. There were times when, in middle school and junior high, I didn’t have a lot of friends. But my mom was always my friend. Always.
You know, in the 1970’s, when I was in high school, I belonged to a band called the Happy Funk Band. Until an unfortunate typo caused us to be expelled from school.
My childhood was limited to mostly gospel music. We didn’t have, like, a lot of records in our house, you know. It was like my grandparents who raised me. They were pretty old-fashioned in their religious ways, so it was like church, church, church, school, school, school.
Every child should have time for arts, music, sports, drama, robotics, school newspapers and the like, not to mention recess and play.
I was an underground rapper and only 16 years old, a freshman at high school. Bang thought I had potential as a rapper and lyricist, and we went from there. Then Suga joined us.
I did my first apprenticeship when I was 15, then joined the union when I was 17. I worked every summer in high school and college.
When I hit 16, I got a scooter to ride to school. It was bright pink, and I saw on the ownership papers that Jonathan Ross once owned it. My friends slated me for it because of the colour, but it was cool. My father used to ride, and my mother’s boyfriend has a bike, so we’re a bit of a biker family.
When I first started out in the industry, I was 12 or whatever, and I wanted to be on something so bad, and I didn’t know what I was going to be on. At the time, I was in school, and I was working on drama and theatrical stuff, so I never thought that I’d end up going to comedy.
I’m not a Twitterer, I’m not a twerker, I’m not a Facebooker, I’m not nothing. I’m old school.
At school, I was always daydreaming and fiddling in inkwells, but I had to learn to grow up and become articulate. And doing that was what brought me into writing songs. It’s like therapy for me, because it exposes what I’m really thinking.
As a young boy, I was taught in high school that hacking was cool.
From the time that I was in high school, my life really revolved around live theater, so it almost feels genetic.
At boarding school there wasn’t much time for much of anything except education.
I’ve actually started a number of businesses in my career. So I’m 28 currently, but when I was about 16, I started building Websites, and that’s how I put myself through school. I went to Duke with a degree in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering, and then to Princeton.
I’ve always been interested in art and making things, but I chose not to go to art school because I thought I needed to do something else. Art was a tough way to make a living.
Don’t get me wrong: school is good and all, but school is way too slow for me. Like, super slow. So I didn’t want to go. I wanted to learn on my own with real life experiences.
Those parts of history that would undermine the vision of the Left – which prevails in our education system from elementary school to postgraduate study – are not likely to get much attention.
I miss high school football.
As a child, it was really hard because I’d be thrown into a new school and have to make new friends, or I’d sit in class for months without speaking the language, but as I got older, I welcomed the possibility of discovering new cultures and languages.
I enjoyed physical education and lunch time. The social aspect of school was great, but as soon as I left school, I wanted to get out there and race. I couldn’t sit still for long.
There was a recording studio in my school, and I knew this kid who had a key, so I’d write lyrics in school while I was in class, and then, in a 10-minute break, I recorded the song ‘Hurt’ in one go at the school studio.
When I was a kid, I thought I would be an entrepreneur and maybe at some point go into law school.
At Columbia Law School, my professor of constitutional law and federal courts, Gerald Gunther, was determined to place me in a federal court clerkship, despite what was then viewed as a grave impediment: On graduation, I was the mother of a 4-year-old child.
I once called construction companies to bid on an addition to the school library so that there would suddenly be people outside, measuring the building. ‘Who authorized this?’ the principal would ask. The answer: ‘Howie Mandel.’
Whatever I was doing, even when I was at school, I never repressed anything that I felt. I wasn’t flamboyant; I was actually quite reticent most of the time. But if I felt I had to do something, I did it.
When I was in school, martial arts made you a dork, and I became self-conscious that I was too masculine. I was a 16-year-old girl with ringworm and cauliflower ears. People made fun of my arms and called me ‘Miss Man.’ It wasn’t until I got older that I realized: These people are idiots. I’m fabulous.
I’m still in school – I’m home-schooled. I do school every day. I finish in, like, four months.
I’m a school dropout. So, at the age of 16, I moved to Mumbai to try my luck on some business.
By the time I left school, I had a lot of tenacity.
I was Persian-American, but I hated bringing Persian food to school. I just didn’t want to stand out in that way. I wanted to be like everybody else.
I was doing good in school, but I didn’t want to do school anymore.
In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.
I was born in Belgium. I went to school in England and in Switzerland, then I came to America, so I really feel like I am a citizen of the world.
They don’t like thinking in medical school. They memorize – that’s all they want you to do. You must not think.
You are graduating from college. That means that this is the first day of the last day of your life. No, that’s wrong. This is the last day of the first day of school. Nope, that’s worse. This is a day.
I had lots of trouble in school as a child, and I lost confidence. Teachers thought I was stupid. I learned to read very late, when I was 11. Dyslexia wasn’t recognized then, and the assumption was you were incapable of thinking.
I started recording in my sophomore year in high school. I recorded things on my cell phone in my basement.
Faith is part of who I am, yes. I was raised Christian Scientist. The most important thing I saw every single week on the wall at Sunday school was the Golden Rule.
I never learned anything at all in school and didn’t read a book for pleasure until I was 19 years old.

When I was in junior high school, the teachers voted me the student most likely to end up in the electric chair.
I lived next to Russian soldiers. We had Russian army guys in our house when I grew up. We made lemonade for them; they were everywhere. I had a Russian school. I grew up with Russian traditions, I know Russian songs… it infiltrates me a lot. I even speak a little Russian.
I was bored one day, so my dad took me to this acting school. I liked it more than having fun – I liked it for an actual job.
I’ve got one grandson gone to MIT. Another grandson had been in the American school here. Because he was dyslexic, and we then didn’t have the teachers to teach him how to overcome or cope with his dyslexia, so he was given exemption to go to the American school. He speaks like an American. He’s going to Wharton.
By not going to school I learned that the world is a beautiful place and needs to be discovered.
I studied German at school. I lived in Berlin for two years and had a German girlfriend for five years, so I don’t find speaking German particularly difficult. Singing was slightly more difficult.
I remember turning onto the street. I saw barricades and police officers and, just, people everywhere. When I saw all of that, I immediately thought that it was Mardi Gras. I had no idea that they were here to keep me out of the school.
I knew more about produce from the sea than any of my schoolmates, and my reports in school, from kindergarten on, amused and shocked my classmates and teachers. I told them how we ate with chopsticks, had rice and seaweed for breakfast, raw fish, octopus, and sea urchin eggs for supper, and cakes made from sharks.
I went to the University of Vermont because I had a kind of unrequited love for this high school girlfriend. She wasn’t even at the University but at another school nearby. But I thought if went to a school near her, just maybe… I was really remedial about girls in so many ways.
I will get my education – if it is in home, school, or anyplace.
I studied fine arts and architecture, but I decided to move into movie design because I grew up in a small town in the Marche region and spent a lot of time after school in the movie theater.
I was a lifeguard and taught swimming lessons when I was in high school.
I only went a year to high school. I should have been in high school, but I was in a band, and when you’re successful doing that – well, you aren’t too likely to go back.
Education is a private matter between the person and the world of knowledge and experience, and has little to do with school or college.
Being sent away to boarding school at seven is as great an inspiration as any songwriter could have – to be taken away from one’s family and locked away for 10 years. It does create an incredible intensity of emotion.
Trump gives progressives a way to channel whatever guilt they might have – whether from preventing homebuilding, benefitting from unfair taxes and pensions, or depriving black and Latino students the teacher quality and school funding they need – into a sanctimonious tribal rage against Republican racism.
We must make sure that there is recess and P.E. class in every school, getting kids outside for 60 minutes, every day.
When people ask me if I went to film school I tell them, ‘no, I went to films.’

I want to remind the new generation about the power of old school romance.
Getting through high school and college was one of my greatest achievements.
The childhood games ended for me when I was 14 and I finished school. I had to find a job, not an easy thing in those days.
I was wrestling all the way to high school, but it kind of came in the same season as basketball, so I had to pick and choose one, and I decided to go all the way with basketball.
I think the future of psychotherapy and psychology is in the school system. We need to teach every child how to rarely seriously disturb himself or herself and how to overcome disturbance when it occurs.
I’m not trying to be new school and I’m not old school – I’m classic. There’s a lot of new cars and there’s a lot of old cars, but I’m just classic in doing what I do.
I never made it to the school choir because the music teacher didn’t like my voice. I was pretty sad. But he was probably right; I did have a voice a bit like a goat, but my dad told me to never give up and to keep going, and it’s paid off.
Peer pressure is something everyone will face in school. You have to really go by what you think is the right thing to do. Turn to the friends you trust the most when you are put in a compromising situation. If your friends are making the wrong decision, then turn to your parents.
Life got very good – we went from living in a one-bedroom apartment to a five-bedroom mansion by the time I was in high school. I had everything I wanted growing up, though all I wanted was music stuff – drums, a PC, turntables.
The formula for achieving middle-class success is simple: Finish high school; don’t have a child before the age of 20; and get married before having the child.

The chief reason for going to school is to get the impression fixed for life that there is a book side for everything.
After college, I went to Alley Theatre in Houston to work in their apprentice actor program. I thought I was gonna get discovered. It didn’t happen. I moved back to Germantown, Tennessee, outside of Memphis, and taught at my old high school.

I did ‘Spanglish’ and went back home, and the next thing I did was my high school play. My agents at the time were like, ‘Uh. What?’
Every year, deans of admissions are pushed: ‘Did you increase the number of applicants? Did you decrease the acceptance rate?’ And it’s an institutional priority for colleges and universities to look for students that are going to have a philanthropic family that could give to that school.
High school dropouts are forfeiting their opportunity to pursue the American Dream.
For me, when I was in high school, that was my ultimate dream, was to make it to the NBA.
It’s not like I’ve ever been the popular pretty girl at school or anything. I was always such a weirdo.
The kids go to a Quaker school. Their father and I believe a lot in community, social responsibility, making sure you give to people less fortunate than you.
The philosophy of the school was quite simple – the bright boys specialised in Latin, the not so bright in science and the rest managed with geography or the like.
I feel like a lot of my past career was going to film school, making a lot of different kinds of movies. I made a bunch of comedies, I made one drama and I made a couple musicals.
When I was at ‘Newsweek’ magazine – which, you know, this really sounds like I walked four miles in the snow to school – but I started at ‘Newsweek’ magazine in 1963, which was before the Civil Rights Act of 1964. So it was actually legal to discriminate against women, and ‘Newsweek’ did.
I trained to be a priest – started to. I went to seminary school when I was 11. I wanted to be a priest, but when they told me I could never have sex, not even on my birthday, I changed my mind.
A balanced diet and physical activity are vital to academic performance. A healthy diet has a direct link to increased cognitive function and memory skills, decreased absenteeism from school, and improved mood. These advantages can help students stay focused and complete their coursework.
My mom speaks English – she moved to England in the ’70s, so she’s fluent in English. We use to speak in Spanish when I was a kid all the time, me and my mom. But when I went to boarding school, I kind of lost it a little bit.

NASA was going to pick a public school teacher to go into space, observe and make a journal about the space flight, and I am a teacher who always dreamed of going up into space.
At school, I felt out of place. I was bullied. I would think, ‘These kids don’t like me, they don’t accept me,’ but I felt like in the entertainment industry, I would fit in.

I’m not going to buy my kids an encyclopedia. Let them walk to school like I did.
I played American Legion ball starting when I was 14. But I didn’t catch until I was 17. I was 75-3 as a high school pitcher, but it was like everybody knew that I was supposed to be a catcher. When the scouts would come around, and I was pitching, they’d make me take infield practice so the scouts could watch me throw.
I was taught that to create anything you had to believe in failure, simply because you had to be prepared to go through an idea without any fear. Failure, you learned, as I did in art school, to be a wonderful thing. It allowed you to get up in the morning and take the pillow off your head.
All children should have a chance to speak up for what matters to them, like school violence, and they should be encouraged to take action to end violence against children.
I still have some very dear friends from school, and we get together whenever possible.

My father was a schoolteacher, and so I had the advantage of both western educational instruction in the school, as well as what you might call the process of imbibing the traditional processes of education instruction around me.

As a teacher I realize that what one learns in school doesn’t serve for very much at all, that the only thing one can really learn is self-understanding, and this is something that can’t be taught.
I used to teach at a private school, and the parents thought I loved their children. I did not love their children! I liked them well enough, but I was always delighted to see them go off for summer vacation.
