A man who has never gone to school may steal from a freight car; but if he has a university education, he may steal the whole railroad.

But, good gracious, you've got to educate him first. You can't expect a boy to be vicious till he's been to a good school.

Education is the period during which you are being instructed by somebody you do not know, about something you do not want to know.

Anyone who has passed through the regular gradations of a classical education, and is not made a fool by it, may consider himself as having had a very narrow escape.

I am beginning to suspect all elaborate and special systems of education. They seem to me to be built up on the supposition that every child is a kind of idiot who must be taught to think.

It is among the commonplaces of education that we often first cut off the living root and then try to replace its natural functions by artificial means. Thus we suppress the child's curiosity and then when he lacks a natural interest in learning he is offered special coaching for his scholastic difficulties.

Showing up at school already able to read is like showing up at the undertaker's already embalmed: people start worrying about being put out of their jobs.

Since every effort in our educational life seems to be directed toward making of the child a being foreign to itself, it must of necessity produce individuals foreign to one another, and in everlasting antagonism with each other.

If [our schools] are still bad maybe we should declare educational bankruptcy, give the people their money and let them educate themselves and start their own schools.

@Quehoniaomath,
I will now collapse this thread because the idiot Quahog is too busy showing us that hes been an abject failure in acquiring knowledge. Otherwise , were he even a slight bit creative in his frustration, hed be busy trying to figure out how to make a system work.

The trouble with being educated is that it takes a long time; it uses up the better part of your life and when you are finished what you know is that you would have benefited more by going into banking.

Much that passes for education is not education at all but ritual. The fact is that we are being educated when we know it least.

The public school has become the established church of secular society.
Together we have come to realize that the right to learn is curtailed by the obligation to attend school.
