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.— Jean Piaget
Sublime back to school quotes that are about old school
I never learned hate at home, or shame. I had to go to school for that.
Play it cool, that's the old school rule man.
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined...
Students who acquire large debts putting themselves through school are unlikely to think about changing society. When you trap people in a system of debt, they can't afford the time to think.
I do not consecrate myself to be a missionary or a preacher.
I consecrate myself to God to do His will where I am, be it in school, office, or kitchen, or wherever He may, in His wisdom, send me.
You don't have to be angry, you don't have to be too cool for school.
You can just have a good time and dance like no one's watching. Just enjoy life.
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Youths are passed through schools that don’t teach, then forced to search for jobs that don’t exist and finally left stranded in the street to stare at the glamorous lives advertised around them.
When children attend schools that place a greater value on discipline and security than on knowledge and intellectual development, they are attending prep schools for prison.
I must remind you that starving a child is violence.
Suppressing a culture is violence. Neglecting school children is violence. Punishing a mother and her family is violence. Discrimination against a working man is violence. Ghetto housing is violence. Ignoring medical need is violence. Contempt for poverty is violence.
Education is a weapon the effect of which is determined by the hands which wield it, by who is to be struck down.
The only person who is educated is the one who has learned how to learn and change.
You can pay for school, but you can't buy class
The first aim of a good college is not to teach books, but the meaning and purpose of life. Hard study and the learning of books are only a means to this end. We develop power and courage and determination and we go out to achieve Truth, Wisdom and Justice. If we do not come to this, the cost of schooling is wasted.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
Every maker of video games knows something that the makers of curriculum don't seem to understand. You'll never see a video game being advertised as being easy. Kids who do not like school will tell you it's not because it's too hard. It's because it's--boring
Equality is the heart and essence of democracy, freedom, and justice, equality of opportunity in industry, in labor unions, schools and colleges, government, politics, and before the law. There must be no dual standards of justice, no dual rights, privileges, duties, or responsibilities of citizenship. No dual forms of freedom.
Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.
Educators need to know what happens in the world of the children with whom they work. They need to know the universe of their dreams, the language with which they skillfully defend themselves from the aggressiveness of their world, what they know independently of the school, and how they know it.
True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.
Don't yield to Satan's lie that you don't have time to study the scriptures.
Choose to take time to study them. Feasting on the word of God each day is more important than sleep, school, work, television shows, video games, or social media. You may need to reorganize your priorities to provide time for the study of the word of God. If so, do it!
Don't let schooling interfere with your education.
The most important day of a person's education is the first day of school, not Graduation Day.
I learned in school that money isn’t everything.
It’s happiness that counts. So momma sent me to a different school.
Conversation enriches the understanding; but solitude is the school of genius.

Inherited hatred (i.e. hatred your parents schooled you in) is not only stupid, it is destructive - why make your only driving force hate? Seems really f***ing dumb to me.
Since every school in India teaches English, why can't it be our link language? Why do Tamils have to study English for communication with the world and Hindi for communications within India? Do we need a big door for the big dog and a small door for the small dog? I say, let the small dog use the big door too!
Don't let anyone tell you that standardized tests are not accurate measures.
The truth of the matter is they offer a remarkably precise method for gauging the size of the houses near the school where the test was administered.

The door that nobody else will go in at, seems always to swing open widely for me.
