In this post, you will find great Schools Quotes from famous people, such as Cornelia Funke, Thomas R. Cech, Ruby Bridges, Tom DeLay, Lizzie Velasquez. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
Violence is a problem we all want to solve. I want to make sure that kids learn to deal with anger by learning how to talk with people to solve problems. Here in the United States Senate I want to make sure we have safe schools, safe neighborhoods and good things for kids to do after school!
At Reliance Foundation schools, we lay special emphasis on value-based education, sports, and overall development of students. That is why the teacher-students ratio is kept at a healthy 1:20 so that all children get proper attention in class.
The next night I got on an airplane, and flew to New York and looked into acting schools. Four or five acting schools. One of which was the Neighborhood Playhouse, which I started at sixmonths there after.
Also, because schools must teach the spirit of goodwill, the habit of helping others around you, every class should have this rule: students, if you bring software to class you may not keep it for yourself.
In elementary school, we all say, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.’ In high school, we should say, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, shut your mouth.’ So that’s what I’m telling high schools all around the world.
When I was teaching Latin in girls’ schools before I became a writer, I didn’t much like it if parents would come in and say, ‘We’ll have less of the Ovid and Virgil and more of the grammar, please.’ After all, I was the one in charge. That’s how I feel about doctors. You should trust them to do their job properly.
I encourage everyone to pay attention to the issues that matter to you, from jobs and the economy, to education and our schools, to criminal justice reform. Whatever it is that you care about, make sure you use your voice.
My days are filled with writing, reading, and being a mom. Some days, I get to visit schools around the country and talk about what it’s like to be a writer. I often feel like I’m pretending, because it’s still hard for me to believe it when I see someoneholding a book that I’ve written.
If you pay a child a dollar to read a book, as some schools have tried, you not only create an expectation that reading makes you money, you also run the risk of depriving the child for ever of the value of it. Markets are not innocent.
There should be regulation that prevents all schools, not just state schools, from teaching creationism because it is indoctrination, it is plantingideas into children’s heads. We should be teaching children to be much more open-minded.
Lately I’ve been going to all these high schools talking to the students, answering their questions, listening to what they have to say. It has been an incrediblejourney to be around them and try to give them what my mother gave me.
The Supreme Court has insulted you over and over again, Lord. They’ve taken your Bible away from the schools. They’ve forbiddenlittle children to pray. They’ve taken the knowledge of God as best they can, and organizations have come into court to take the knowledge of God out of the public square of America.
If the government announced that it was going to allocate a vast tranche of education funding purely to the pupils at the best public schools, there would be a national outcry – and yet this is precisely what the Olympicsrepresents in terms of sports funding.
I have a Web site that parents and girls can use to learn about Title IX and take action if they find their school is not in compliance. Thirty years after Title IX passed, 80 percent of schools are not in compliance.
I am personallyinterested in more than just business schools. However, life has been good to me, and it’s been good to me through a business career. I think the chance to help strengthen the foundation of young people going into business, as I did, just appeals to me.
We need sex education in schools, but we need it at home first. We need parents to learn the names of the teachers who are teaching their children. We need families to question day-care centers, to question other children and their own as to what goes on.
How many Catholic schools do you think teach the students to question the authority of the Pope? Do you believe Christian schools teach students to question or challenge the authority of Jesus Christ? Do military schools teach the cadets to challenge the authority.
I think in some cases busing did improve the situation in some areas; in some cases it didn’t. We had busing in St. Louis, and it has been ended and we are using other methods of trying to better integrate the schools.
I first considered writing ‘New York’ in 1991. I’d been in the city for a decade, was married to an American wife, and sending my children to New York schools. I was even on the board of a coop building. But I wasn’t sure how to organize such complex material, and for many years I put the project aside.
In this knowledge-worker age, it’s now increasinglytied to doing well in school so you can get into better grad schools so you can get better jobs – so the pressure to do well is really high.
Nowadays people seem to switch schools, either because they have to, and certain schools only serve certain grades, or because they move to a different place or have some particular interest, but I was in the same school for 13 years.
I tell you what Hispanics in Virginia tell me they want. They want access to the American dream. That’s why they come here to Virginia and to America, so they want more opportunities to start small business, better schools.
Because most of my career in the classroom has been at art schools (beginning at Bennington in the 1970s), I am hyper-aware of the often grotesquedisconnect between commentary on the arts and the actual practice or production of the arts.
The things you leave school knowing – some dates and long division – so much of it has been of no use to me. Schools should teach the basics of cookery, first aid, how to look after your money and how to speak foreign languages. Useful things.
I had a great drama teacher, and he sort of made out drama school as this incrediblydifficult thing to get into: 6,000 people apply every year, and some of the schools only have 12 places. It’s a phenomenally difficult thing to get into. And that excited me – I wanted that challenge.
This is what I have learned: Any white person living in the United States will develop opinions about race simply by swimming in the water of our culture. But mainstream sources – schools, textbooks, media – don’t provide us with the multiple perspectives we need.
Marylanders have led the nation in adopting a balanced approach to revenues and investments because we know that in order to maintain and build the #1 public schools in the nation, we had to ask everyone to pay their fair share. We need Congress to do the same.
I went to something like six different schools before the age of 12, so I was always the new girl and had to make friends quickly. It was difficult at the start because I was very bookish – I was literally sat in the cornerreading books, with no friends.
Many of the mainstream agricultural scientists, especially at the agricultural schools, but at all of our major universities, are tied into all sorts of contractual relationships and consulting relationships with the life science companies.
The Left has taken over the universities and, increasingly, high schools and elementary schools. It dominates the news and entertainment media. And many judges and courts are leftist – meaning that their decisions are guided by leftism more than by the law or the Constitution.
Now we maintain that we cannot be afford to be concerned about 6 percent of the children in this country, black children, who you allow to come into white schools. We have 94 percent who still live in shacks. We are going to be concerned about those 94 percent.
Before I got through high school I had attended 22 different schools. In the time before I was well acquainted with the latest school, I would amusemyself by drawing and found that I was pretty good at it.
Americans want students to get the best education possible. We want schools to prepare children to become good citizens and members of a prosperous American economy.
I think every parent knows that, like, boys and girls are different. And we just don’t take that into account in schools on those things like required reading lists. ‘Cause that was my experience, say, with my son, who had to read ‘Little House on the Prairie‘ when he was in third grade.
It is a matter of public shame that while we have now commemorated our hundredth anniversary, not one in every ten children attending Public schools throughout the colonies is acquainted with a single historical fact about Australia.
My most important projects have been the building and maintaining of schools and medical clinics for my dear friends in the Himalaya and helping restore their beautiful monasteries, too.
I got to college and saw all of my friends going to these other schools and thought, ‘You know, college is just a blankslate.’ And I had an opportunity to go to different schools, but I chose Brown because it was unique and allowed you to be yourself as an individual and like I said, it’s a blank slate.
People tell you the world looks a certain way. Parents tell you how to think. Schools tell you how to think. TV. Religion. And then at a certain point, if you’re lucky, you realize you can make up your own mind. Nobody sets the rules but you. You can design your own life.
Schools used to fund-raise for luxuries, like a trip to the water slides. Now, we fund-raise for things we have to have.
But it is equallynecessary to consider the implications for a society if there are fewer and fewer young people making music because we are economising on music schools or musical education in schools.
I always tend to write about outsiders. And what’s been fun for me is, as I travel around and visit schools, is that other kids that feel the same way relate to some of my characters, and so I hope in some way that’s helping them when they want to read about somebody that they can relate to.
Coming from havingabsolutely nothing to having a few grand in the bank, it was a big culture leap. I think that’s why I went off the rails a bit really, ’cause there was no training for it. They didn’t do fame in schools.
In the end, all new schools, public or private, snobby or not, add value to the education market, making it bigger and more efficient, in the same way that Zuckerberg added wealth to the economy even for non-Facebookfans.
I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclearexplosion to a firecracker.
Some go on to trade schools or get further training for jobs they are interested in. Some go into the arts, some are craftsmen, some take a little time out to travel, and some start their own businesses. But our graduates find and work at what they want to do.
Meanwhile, parents, students and teachers all report higher satisfaction with charter schools. People like them. They costless money. They raise the academic achievement of poor kids. Go ahead, get a little enthused.
I studied with a blind teacher from about 5 until I was 16, at two different schools. From the age of 12 until 16, I was in a boarding school-which, I believe, at that time was compulsory for blind children.
Art shouldn’t be prohibited in public schools when kids in private schools always get it.
Social class has worked for years. Born into the right family, go to the right schools, even if you’re not super bright to start with, you’ll turn out bright. You go to the right university, you get the right job, you have the right connections, you’ll make it to the top. Job done, very efficient.
And, in the case of schools, or anything else, if you have something that is forcing you to do better than you did the day before, it makes you look forward and it makes you think in a way that’s going to make the product better, which is the students and the education.
Men we shall have only as we make manhood the object of the work of the schools – intelligence, broad sympathy, knowledge of the world that was and is, and of the relation of men to it – this is the curriculum of that Higher Education which must underlie true life.
When I was superintendent of Denver Public Schools, I saw the potential of some of our best and brightest students cut short, punished for the actions of others – kids who had grown up and done well in our school system, and kids who know no other home but America. This is unacceptable.
I’m glad the NCAA is pushing back the 3-point line a foot. I’m a big supporter of the 3-point shot; it’s exciting. I hope the high schools adopt the same rule.
It’s not like Alaska isn’t wilderness – it mostly is. But most Alaskans don’t live in the wild. They live on the edge of the wild in towns with schools and cable TV and stores and dentists and roller rinks sometimes. It’s just like anyplace else, only with mountains and moose.
People generally complain that they’re overburdened by responsibilities, forgetting that they chose to have those responsibilities. No one makes you work like a dog in order to live in a nice house, put your kids in nice schools, drive a smart car and go on exotic foreign holidays. It’s up to you.
If you look back at British history, women being allowed to play sport in schools meant they had to change their clothing. They couldn’t be running around in their long skirts and corsets, because you can’t.
Rural communities and our nation’s economy also stand to benefit from broadbandexpansion. Rural schools can expand the quantity and quality of educational programming. Rural communities can attract businesses and investment.
Public schools are not simply being corporatized, they are also subjected increasingly to a militarizing logic that disciplines the bodies of young people, especially low income and poor minorities, and shapes their desires and identities in the service of military values and social relations.
The future is built on brains, not prom court, as most people can tell you after attending their high school reunion. But you’d never know it by talking to kids or listening to the messages they get from the culture and even from their schools.
I grew up in the ’50s, in New York City, where television was born. There were 90 live shows every week, and they used a lot of kids. There were schools just for these kids. There was a whole world that doesn’t exist anymore.
I’m an advocate of music in schools. It’s important to me that music is in as many schools as possible across this country and across the world. I think that it’s a lostart form because kids aren’t as exposed to it as maybe they used to be, or should be. I was exposed heavily to jazz and that’s why I love it.
Instead of just givinglip service to improving our schools, I will actually put the kids first and the teachers union behind in giving our kids better teachers, better options and better choices for a better future.
If you are educated in English-medium schools, you get a better view of the world, develop more liberal values, have more gender sensitivity and become more forward looking. But you pay a price because you don’t know your own language.
Sporting culture is needed where marks are given to students for sports in schools, jobs are assured for sportsperson, and sponsors are willing to support them through rough times.
I do not think that the educational program of our schools should be determined by what the community thinks it needs.
What are called ‘public schools’ in many of America’s wealthy communities aren’t really ‘public’ at all. In effect, they’re private schools, whosetuition is hidden away in the purchase price of upscale homes there, and in the corresponding propertytaxes.
My new passion is to get Internet education mandated in all schools. We’ve got to start teaching our kids how to be safe in the 40,000 plus chatrooms that are out there. Because they’re being had. These sexual predators groom the kids. I know, I’ve arrested enough of them.
As Americans, we’re not sure we share values. We’re sometimes even afraid to use the word ‘values.’ We talk about teaching ethics in schools – people say, ‘What ethics? Whose ethics? Maybe we can’t.’ And they confuse that with teaching of religion.
My dad was in the military. It was difficult sometimes, because he would have to be away a lot, and we would have to move around a lot. Trying to adapt to new schools and new places can be really tough.
I’ve lived in my house for 20 years and, while I love to travel, I don’t dream of moving abroad. Give me home comforts and shops, schools and friends’ welcoming kitchens within walking distance any day.
In Greenville, we were blessed to have lots of youth arts programs. I changed middle schools to go to an arts middle school. Then, when high school came, I went to normal high school for a little while before auditioning for the Governor’s School for Arts and Humanities.
The problem is, education in America is sub-optimal because it is an impossible thing to optimize. It necessarily has to be local because different schools face different problems. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions.
We need better neighbors, neighbors that care about the schools in their neighborhood whether they have kids in them or not, because they know that the health and vitality of that neighborhood depends on it.
The idea that corporations have the same First Amendment protections of free speech as people is troubling. Corporations are not people. They don’t attend our schools, get married and have children. They don’t vote in our elections.
I’ve studied various schools of thought… I acknowledge that some Muslims consider music prohibited, but I’ve found a lot of evidence from the life of the Prophet to show that he allowed certainly, but even encouraged, music at certain times.
I think the black community is no different from any other community. We need to take responsibility for how we live together. We need to be personally responsible for keeping our streets clean, our schools safe, and our housespeaceful.
My dad is from India, my mom is from Russia. Fortunately, we moved a lot. I went to a lot of different schools and completely different cultures, so that’s my background.
The day is past when schools could afford to give sufficient time and attention to the teaching of the ancient languages to enable the student to get that enjoyment out of classicalliterature that made the lives of our grandfathers so rich.
In taking action we must remember that the things which are happening to the Jews today are but a part of the general disintegration anticipated by philosophers and historians of different schools for almost half a century.
I went to Paramount High School, Mayfair High School, all types of high schools. I’m not a high school graduate, but it’s all good.
I went to big, broken, under-resourced public schools, but we had a real sense of community, because those were days in the ’50s and the ’60s when every child was under the jurisdiction of every single adult on the block.
You begin to see that all of these things are connected: The kind of cuts that mean less environmental protection are also the kind of cuts that mean less musical education for the schools and that also mean more overcrowded schools.
I went to regular schools and I was home schooled a lot but I don’t have any history in schools. Like, I literally don’t exist. I didn’t even get a birth certificate until the mid-80s. I always feel like I could be, like, 10 years younger, or maybe I’m 70!
You can do and use the skills that you have. The schools need you. The teachers need you. Students and parents need you. They need your actual person: your physicalpersonhood and your open minds and open ears and boundlesscompassion, sitting next to them, listening and nodding and asking questions for hours at a time.
And when I go around and talk to schools, what I tell the kids are, first of all, you have to accept each other’s differences. Some of you are going to be a crappy football player, some of you are going to be a great mathematician. Whatever it is, accept each other’s differences and help prop each other up.
If the women of the United States, with their free schools and all their enlarged liberties, are not superior to women brought up under monarchical forms of government, then there is no good in liberty.
Anna Howard Shaw
The number one reason I write is to come to schools and see my readers. I would do it for free.
I am a very instinctive Conservative. I have created a welfare system where it pays to work. I have created independent schools within the state sector bringing excellence to children wherever they are.
Charter schools are public schools that operate, to a certain extent, outside the system. They have more control over their teachers, curriculum and resources. They also have less money than public schools.
So many schools are getting rid of music programs and it’s really sad because I know that when I started singing and stuff it was something that I always wanted to do and I never believed in myself to be able to do it.
I’m very, very concerned ultimately, as Medicaid costs increase in my state and most states, it’s going to reduce funding for state aid to our public schools, to our higher education institution or higher taxes on the middle class that President Obama said he didn’t want to do. And that’s exactly where he’s headed.
Many schools today are sacrificing social studies, the arts and physical education so children can cover basic subjects like math, English and science.
If the education of our kids comes from radio, television, newspapers – if that’s where they get most of their knowledge from, and not from the schools, then the powers that be are definitely in charge, because they own all those outlets.
How is it we could have a system where schools could remain lousy for 50 years and yet you do exactly the same thing this year that they did 50 years ago when it didn’t work then, and no one feels any pressure to change?
By offering an education centered on values, the faculty in Catholic schools can create an interactive setting between parents and students that is geared toward long-term healthy character and scholastic development for all enrolled children.
If I was a state, I would like to see education left to the schools themselves, but I don’t want the federal government involved in education. I think that it ends up setting standards that cost you time and money and don’t make any difference in education. I want to stop that.
Can you believe approximately 17 percent of American children ages 2 to 19 years are obese? How about this fact: approximately 60 percent of overweight children ages 5 to 10 already have at least one risk factor for heart disease? We are all to blame for this – parents, schools, kids – all of us.
The remoteness of my parents from the schools, so unfashionable today, was often painful for me, but I learned early to deal with an outside and sometimes hard world.
Martin Lewis Perl
But I find with FrancisBacon, some of the things were in the place, and someone who was connected with these schools of thought, and someone who had a motivation that equals the scope of the comedy and the tragedy in the plays.
We have an obligation and a responsibility to be investing in our students and our schools. We must make sure that people who have the grades, the desire and the will, but not the money, can still get the best education possible.
But you’re never taught in schools – we don’t teach anyone in public schools that government is the problem. We don’t teach anyone in college that government is the problem – except maybe a handful of sort of unique, conservative schools. But mainstream media never talks as if government is the problem.
I’m worried about the future of America insofar as our academically most promising students are being funneled through the cookie-cutter Ivy League and other elite schools and emerging with this callow anti-American, anti-military cast to their thinking.
In America the schools have become too permissive, the kids now are controlling the schools, the tail is wagging the dog. We’ve got to make a change there and get it back to where the teachers have control of the classrooms.
We need to make sure that the fast-growing States and the balance of States in this country have as much information as available because I cannot imagine the pain as a parent myself of having my child molested by someone in our schools.
I speak for a lot of church groups, youth groups, schools, colleges and do personal appearances. I’ve done conventions and trade shows. A lot of different little hats.
Design schools are good, I guess, sometimes I visit schools, but they are very very limiting.
Gen Y is really quite distinct from Gen X; it’s really self-involved and very narcissistic – their cameras are filled with pictures of themselves; Facebook, it’s about me. It’s a generation that’s been pampered by their parents and their schools, given prizes for just taking part.
You won’t believe what our kids are eating in the public schools. It’s just nuts.
The Nation of Islam’s main focus was teaching black pride and self-awareness. Why should we keep trying to force ourselves into white restaurants and schools when white people didn’t want us? Why not clean up our own neighborhoods and schools instead of trying to move out of them and into white people’s neighborhoods?
I grew up moving around. I went to seven different schools, so I know what it’s like to be that new girl and have to not only know who you are but also take that into foreign circumstances and know how to respond.
In the schools of small Midwestern towns, the only aristocracies are of beauty, intelligence, and athletic prowess.
Direct Grants, private schools which took huge numbers of state pupils, involved effective co-operation between state and private sectors – a thing all modern governments claim they want. So why were they abolished? And why aren’t they now restored?
Indeed, the study of universities and the great men and women who have attended them leads me to think that the best of these schools are characterized not so much by what they teach and how they teach it but by the extent they provide opportunities and encouragement for students to teach themselves.
It’s such a stress always trying to get bigger houses and larger cars and better schools. Of course, parents want to give their children the best opportunities in life, but sometimes that can stifle them.
America has a strategic interest in continuing to welcome international students at our colleges, universities, and high schools. Attracting the world’s top scientificscholarshelps to keep our economy competitive.
My father is a university professor so when the schools needed a little kid for their productions I was often the kid they used. The first time I was ever on stage was about 2nd grade.
We must have moral education in the schools, anti-bullying programs, but this does not mean programs to feminize boys.
Some people need a targeted kind of learning. They need a different approach, like charter schools. There are virtual classrooms that some will do well in. The reality is, if there are no options, if there is just one particular standard, then someone is going to fall through the cracks, as we’ve seen.
I don’t think about the gender thing very much. But when I speak at schools, I’ve had female students say to me afterwards, “I never envisioned myself being a director, since I’ve never seen women do it.” But after seeing me, they can picture themselves directing, so maybe we’ll see more female directors.
I’ve been visiting community centres and schools for 20-plus years and what I’ve seen is that kids are kids, they want to learn. They learn from experiences, they ask questions when they don’t know something.
I just went to your typical public schools, and my dad would take us to the movies every week, or he’d buy scalped tickets to San AntonioSpurs games. I remember I was four or five years old and my parents, who were very young, took us to see The Police in Austin, and Iggy Pop opened.
I don’t think the Constitution is studied almost anywhere, including law schools. In law schools, what they study is what the court said about the Constitution. They study the opinions. They don’t study the Constitution itself.
You can do anything if you set your mind to it. Look out for kids, help them dream and be inspired. We teach calculus in schools, but I believe the most important formula is courage plus dreams equals success.
After the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, primary education was made free. We are now thinking to make education in the public sector free up to graduation level. We are also thinking of providing a light meal at primary and secondary schools in order to increase the student retention level.
Republicans get a lot of money from big business, but they are not tied to the union dollar. As a result they have been aggressive advocates of school reform, charter schools and vouchers for private schools.
I am an Air Force brat who grew up at various Air Force bases. I changed six schools in about five years and got stability for the first time when I was sent to a boarding school, Rishi Valley. I lived outside of a cantonment-style living and was among an eclecticmix of kids and got exposed to books and other things.
Research shows that there is only half as much variation in student achievement between schools as there is among classrooms in the same school. If you want your child to get the best education possible, it is actually more important to get himassigned to a great teacher than to a great school.
The strongestresults were in Florida and Texas. In just one year in a Texas charter school, an average student gained 7 percentile points in math and 8 percentile points in reading, while Florida charter schools improved student performance by 6 percentile points.
There is a cost that comes with moving schools so often and it’s not what I want for my son when he gets older, but it did make me very adaptable. I became aware of what was missing from the social structure of each class that I arrived in, and made sure to fill that gap.
It is a sad commentary that today we face a choice between having schools that are a monument to our past – or schools that will be the lifeblood of our future. But since that is our choice, let usresolve to choosewisely.
Schools serving disadvantaged students need more time to help these students catch up and gain the core academic skills they will need to succeed in our economy and society.
I’ve read stories of slave owners who were very generous. They didn’t keep them in shackles, they didn’t whip the slaves, they built schools and churches for them, free housing, free food, free everything. It’s wrong. No matter how nice you make it look, it’s wrong.
I lived in BeverlyHills for years. I always had a line, ‘I hate the rich.’ From what I witnessed after living there for 15 years, these people just don’t raise their kids. I used to see the lineup of cars in front of the schools and it was all the nannies.
Andrew Dice Clay
When no other schools in the Southeastern Conference or the former Southwestern Conference would award them athletic scholarships, African Americans had been recruited by and playing for Texas Western since the 1950s.
By 2050, the Australian population is expected to grow from 22 million to 36 million. That increase alone will put huge pressure on our towns and our cities. We will need more homes, more roads, more raillines, more hospitals, more schools, just to accommodate so many Australians.
Most Canadians previously had no idea what went on in the residential schools. You tell Canadians the last one closed in 1996, they are appalled. So now that Canadians are aware of residential schools, you’d think there would be a huge impetus for progress. It hasn’t, and that’s amazing.
Public schools helped create the idea of America and inculcate Americans with a few rudiments of knowledge. To judge by that very American item, the Internet, a few rudiments is all anyone cares to have.
I think it’s really important that the anti-bullying messages get into schools and become a staple in every school.
Jails and prisons are the complement of schools; so many less as you have of the latter, so many more must you have of the former.
Scientists at MIT and engineering schools all across America say that they could improve the fuel economy standards for the existing set of vehicles by 10 miles per gallon using existing technology, without compromisingsafety or comfort at all.
I went to the University of Maryland for a year and was considering maybe, you know, being a medical doctor but decided my other interest was maybe flying airplanes in the Navy and just kind of changed my mind and changed schools and changed majors and decided to focus a hundred percent on that.
There are different types of talents and intelligences, and traditional schools sometimes ignore the creative ones. It is important for us to give kids every platform for them to find what they are good at and what they love. The arts also provide a space for newfound creativity.
I’m all for ‘tools,’ not ‘schools,’ of therapy. To me, the schools of therapy compete much like religions, or even cults, all claiming to know the cause and to have the best method for treating people.
There is, however, a change going on in the world. There’s far more interest in drawing now than there has been in a long, long time. Schools are beginning to teach drawing again in a serious and meaningful way.
Just this week, my husband proposed a plan for schools and libraries to develop their own plans to keep children from findingindecent material on the Internet as an alternative to a Congressional proposal that would require a federally mandated solution.
When nearly a third of our high school students do not graduate on time with their peers, we have work to do. We must design our middle and high schools so that no student gets lost in the crowd and disconnected from his or her own potential.
Hoping to instill my love of learning in other children, I taught my first class at a local elementary school the year my first book, ‘Flying Fingers,’ debuted; since then, I have spoken at hundreds of schools, classrooms and conferences around the world.
My perspective is never gonna change on that… We’ve got to do a much better job to take care of poor people, because you cannot put all the poor people in bad neighborhoods, send them to bad schools, and say, ‘Good luck in life.’ That’s just not right.
Many of the original New Deal programs required heavymanual labor. WPA workers built hundreds of schools, health clinics, roads, park facilities, and community centers. Much of what we now call our ‘infrastructure’ – highways, buildings, power plants, etc. – is here thanks to thousands of WPA workers.
By climbing a steeper road, the value and appreciationDelaware State students took and continue to take from their education and their experiences is just as great, if not greater, than students attending ivy league schools.
In Barack Obama, we have a great education president who is rebuilding America. His Race to the Top program is doing more to ‘spur us’ to improve our public schools than anything we’ve ever done as a nation.
If the Liberals‘ law is passed, will sex education in the schools, including elementary grades, include the same portrayals of sexual activity which presently exist in heterosexual instruction? Will there be the same presentation of homosexual activity? Of course there will.
There are many examples in high schools which show something about the effects such competition might have.
James S. Coleman
A coalition with Tories and Liberal Democrats together is a golden opportunity to create the sort of planning reform that means not only can we have more environmentally sensitive planning, but we can have more homes and more schools.
Children from a given family background, when put in schools of different social compositions, will achieve at quite different levels.

As we try to compete in this globalmarketplace, we need to rebuild our infrastructure. We need to rebuild our schools. We need to make sure that teachers and first responders and veterans who are coming home from serving our country so proudly have jobs waiting for them.
The logic is that when you provide schools or any social service to people, they have no choice. They have to take what you give them, because they don’t have the money to pay for schools themselves; that’s why you provide schools in the first place.
In France the music schools are a bit old fashioned. I was more excited about doing my own stuff or to play with my friend in my band, than studying the piano.
I have wanted to be a fine artistpainter, and I reached the point in art schools were I’d like to understand more about images and how images communicate information to people. And I was not getting very far in that from my professors.
Like it or not, I’ve come to appreciate soccer. Any kid can play, which fits with the inclusive agenda of progressive schools. Although the corollary to ‘any kid can play’ is that every kid must play because there is an iron grip to the warmhug of progressive inclusionism.
When you’re your parents’ one shot at a genetic legacy, you may get to attend all the best schools, wear all the best clothes and eat all the best foods – at least relative to children in multiple-sibling households. But you also wind up with an overweening sense of your own importance.
In a world as competitive as ours, the child who does not get a decent education is condemned to the fringes of society. I think all Australians agree that this is intolerable. So we must demand as much of our schools as we do of our sports teams – and ensure that they keep the Australian dream alive for every child.
My father’s from Australia and my mother was born in India, but she’s actually Tibetan. I was born in Katmandu, lived there until I was eight, and then moved to Australia with my mother and father. So yeah, I’m very mixed up, been to many different schools.
