Schooling............................


“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.” 
-Plato

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.” 
-Plutarch

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

“Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon.” 
-E.M. Forster

“I'm sorry to say that the subject I most disliked was mathematics. I have thought about it. I think the reason was that mathematics leaves no room for argument. If you made a mistake, that was all there was to it.” 
-Malcolm X

“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


"Never let book-learning get in the way of your education."
-unofficial motto of our fraternity, 1970-73
