Who, What, When, Where and Why

Everyone is a learner and the key is to engage each individual as an active participant in a dynamic process that is relevant, valuable, and meaningful. The term "everyone" refers to learners of all ages, at all stages.

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
Margaret Mead

“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
“Upon the subject of education, not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it, I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people can be engaged in.”
― Abraham Lincoln

“Why not spend that time on art: painting, sculpting, charcoal, pastel, oils? Are words or numbers more important than images? Who decides this? Does algebra move you to tears? Can plural possessives express the feelings in your heart? ― Laurie Halse Anderson
“To educate a person in the mind but not in morals is to educate a menace to society.”
Theodore Roosevelt

“The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, and not accept, everything they are offered.”
Jean Piaget

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”
Henry Ford

“All of life is a constant education.”
Eleanor Roosevelt
“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”
John Lubbock

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
Nelson Mandela

“When you know better you do better.”
Maya Angelou

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
W.B. Yeats

“Give a bowl of rice to a man and you will feed him for a day. Teach him how to grow his own rice and you will save his life.”
“Liberty without Learning is always in peril and Learning without Liberty is always in vain.”
John F. Kennedy

“The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty.”
James Madison

“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”
Derek Bok
