Thoughts on Education from the Past to Present Just to Think About

The mind is not a vessel to be filled,
but a fire to be ignited.

It must be remembered that the purpose of education
is not to fill the minds of students with facts...
it is to teach them to think, if that is possible,
and always to think for themselves.
-Robert Hutchins
In education it isn't how much you have committed to memory
or even how much you know.
It's being able to differentiate
between what you do know and what you don't.
It's knowing where to go to find out what you need to know
and it's knowing how to use the information you get.
-William Feather

The objective of education
is to prepare the young
to educate themselves throughout their lives.
-Robert Maynard Hutchins

Information cannot replace education.-Earl Kiole

The kids in our classroom are infinitely more significant
than the subject matter we teach.
-Meladee McCarty
