Early college high schools in North Carolina and across the country show us that challenge – not remediation – is an approach to education that works.
In a world as competitive as ours, the child who does not get a decent education is condemned to the fringes of society. I think all Australians agree that this is intolerable.

Who thought it would be a good idea to undermine art in the school curriculum? Who thought studying the history of our visual culture was a waste of time? Who thought that only private schools should have that privilege? Was it someone who said we don’t need experts?
I’ve nothing against schools! I’m against compulsory schooling.
You can’t just pillory the teachers unions and sound the free market trumpet. We must visit the failing schools. We must talk to the mother who desperately wants more for her child and offer a constructive way out. We can’t simply lambaste… food stamps or decry dependency.
There are hardly any apprenticeships in care; hardly any schools preparing teenagers for jobs in care; and few signs that politicians know what to do to raise the status and rewards for what will soon be one of our most important industries.
You look at public education system, charter schools, infrastructure, in so many ways New Orleans has come back stronger.
I’ve been visiting community centres and schools for 20-plus years and what I’ve seen is that kids are kids, they want to learn. They learn from experiences, they ask questions when they don’t know something.
In America the schools have become too permissive, the kids now are controlling the schools, the tail is wagging the dog. We’ve got to make a change there and get it back to where the teachers have control of the classrooms.

My perspective is never gonna change on that… We’ve got to do a much better job to take care of poor people, because you cannot put all the poor people in bad neighborhoods, send them to bad schools, and say, ‘Good luck in life.’ That’s just not right.
Women have to be very vigilant, and demand the very best in public schools, health care and pay, those things that men and women of this state value are at risk.

I’m very, very concerned ultimately, as Medicaid costs increase in my state and most states, it’s going to reduce funding for state aid to our public schools, to our higher education institution or higher taxes on the middle class that President Obama said he didn’t want to do. And that’s exactly where he’s headed.
Illegal immigration is not just a matter of interest in states along our border with Mexico. It is having an effect on local economies, schools, health care delivery, and public safety all across the country.
People like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been very busy educating America about just how much socialism we have, from Social Security to Medicare to public schools to public universities, and how much we love that.

The opportunities of America opened out to me the public schools. They carried me to the professional training of an American university. I began by working with my own hands for my daily bread.

If we had in this room a hundred teachers, good teachers from good schools, and asked them to define the word education, there would be very little general agreement.
You can do and use the skills that you have. The schools need you. The teachers need you. Students and parents need you. They need your actual person: your physical personhood and your open minds and open ears and boundless compassion, sitting next to them, listening and nodding and asking questions for hours at a time.
The schools that suffer are the schools in, in poor neighborhoods. They are the neighborhoods with the greatest need, with the parents struggling to work and to make ends meet. They don’t have enough resources to give, they don’t have enough resources to pay more, and these are the neighborhoods that go first.
Education technology is very important because we have a massive challenge in public schools.
Our public schools arbitrarily define science as explaining the world by natural processes alone. In essence, a religion of naturalism is being imposed on millions of students. They need to be taught the real nature of science, including its limitations.
I vividly remember segregation – separate schools, sitting in the balcony at the movie theater, being barred from the public swimming pool.
Second, when comparing private school and public school test scores, it’s like apples and oranges. Public schools have to take everyone, but private schools can be selective. It’s not accurate or fair to compare the job they do.
Well I’ve been crystal clear that we should not have schools which are set up by extremists whether they’re Christian fundamentalists, Islamic fundamentalists or any other sort of outrageous and beyond the pale organization.
The Nation of Islam’s main focus was teaching black pride and self-awareness. Why should we keep trying to force ourselves into white restaurants and schools when white people didn’t want us?

I’ve been in dance schools since I was four. I went to the Brit school. I did adverts and plays.
I always tend to write about outsiders. And what’s been fun for me is, as I travel around and visit schools, is that other kids that feel the same way relate to some of my characters, and so I hope in some way that’s helping them when they want to read about somebody that they can relate to.
Despite the amazing diversity we’re blessed with in this country, schools are still in large part segregated because of economic disparity. Sports are one of the few areas where kids are really given the opportunity to interact with those of different races and religions.

By including children with different learning abilities in mainstream and specialized schools, we can change attitudes and promote respect. By creating suitable jobs for adults with autism, we integrate them into society.
When I tell people I work to stop hazing in high schools I am almost always met with shocked expressions. ‘High school? Really? I thought that was something that only arrogant frat guys do in college.’ But it’s true – as long as I have worked on preventing bullying in high schools, I have worked to prevent hazing.
There is much more to schools than buildings. There are academic activities, how it reaches the community and its proximity to other programs.

Americans want students to get the best education possible. We want schools to prepare children to become good citizens and members of a prosperous American economy.
Leftism has influenced the literary, academic, media, and, therefore, the political elite far more than any other religion. It has taken over Western schools from elementary through graduate.

I believe that no one can teach you how to act, but schools do give you an environment to make mistakes, to learn techniques and to learn professionalism.
If you make the decision to send your kid to public school don’t even look at private schools. Just shut the door. Just turn off the TV. And then you don’t even have to worry about preschool. You have to worry about what’s good for your kid, but you don’t have to worry about how to position yourself.
I never saw myself going to college. Even when I was looking at different schools, I was like, this really isn’t right.

Cricket was deemed too posh where I came from, and I’d never have risked walking home through the estates in my whites. My club played some of the posh schools. I’d have the cheapest kit, but I loved those games. As soon as the posh lads opened their mouths and you heard their accents, the stakes were raised.
Girls of color and young women need to be seen, heard, and valued. Schools can help make this happen by including our stories in the curriculum.

We must have moral education in the schools, anti-bullying programs, but this does not mean programs to feminize boys.

In this knowledge-worker age, it’s now increasingly tied to doing well in school so you can get into better grad schools so you can get better jobs – so the pressure to do well is really high.
The logic is that when you provide schools or any social service to people, they have no choice. They have to take what you give them, because they don’t have the money to pay for schools themselves; that’s why you provide schools in the first place.
I had a quite unconventional childhood, in the sense that I traveled a lot and I went to 10 or 11 schools. I was completely confused academically, but wherever I went, I could paint. I painted an inordinate amount.
I went to 11 different schools. It was a fantastic adventure, but I was incredibly sensitive and needed a bit more stability.

When I was teaching Latin in girls’ schools before I became a writer, I didn’t much like it if parents would come in and say, ‘We’ll have less of the Ovid and Virgil and more of the grammar, please.’ After all, I was the one in charge. That’s how I feel about doctors. You should trust them to do their job properly.
I went to the local schools, the local state primary school, and then to the local grammar school. A secondary school, which technically was an independent school, it was not part of the state educational system.
With the commissioning of new schools undertaken by a local director of school standards, decisions will be fair and transparent, rooted in the needs of the local community. The admissions code and the role of the adjudicator will also be strengthened to provide fairness for all children.
If I was a state, I would like to see education left to the schools themselves, but I don’t want the federal government involved in education. I think that it ends up setting standards that cost you time and money and don’t make any difference in education. I want to stop that.
I went to something like six different schools before the age of 12, so I was always the new girl and had to make friends quickly. It was difficult at the start because I was very bookish – I was literally sat in the corner reading books, with no friends.

Let’s reintroduce corporal punishment in the schools – and use it on the teachers.
By far the most important factor in the success or failure of any school, far more important than tests or standards or business-model methods of accountability, is simply attracting the best-educated, most exciting young people into urban schools and keeping them there.

Imagine if baseball were taught the way science is taught in most inner-city schools. Schoolchildren would get lectures about the history of the World Series. High school students would occasionally reproduce famous plays of the past. Nobody would get in the game themselves until graduate school.

Far be it for the public schools to teach this, but the U.S.A. was founded on basic Judeo-Christian principles. Don’t believe me – take a trip to Washington D.C. and tour the Supreme Court building. There you will see a sculpted copy of the Ten Commandments on the wall.
Schooling should not be left to the whim or wealth of village elders. I believe that we should fund all schools in the U.S. with our national resources. All these kids are being educated to be Americans, not citizens of Minneapolis or San Francisco.

We have to provide good teachers, good environment, community involvement with schools.
When we advocate for violence against women to be eliminated on campuses, we say, ‘Well, actually, it’s not just on campuses we have to worry about.’ We might have to worry about high schools. We might have to worry about police precincts and cars. We might have to worry about public housing.
I changed high schools three times because my parents moved. I had one friend my freshman year named Miki Vukovich. Miki and I were the only skaters in our high school. He runs my foundation now.

In contemporary art culture, where good looks and clever strategic planning of art careers have become a feature, professional practice may be taught in art schools like a branch of public relations or political science.
Outreach appearances in the schools are usually part of my contracts, and I love doing them.
I attended schools in Seattle through the University of Washington, from which I was graduated in 1931. I spent the next year at Northwestern University.
You can be a lender who wants to compete and have a better product, but you just can’t get to the students. The schools are controlling the access to the students.
Many expanded-time schools have generated extraordinary results. In some cases, they have completely closed the achievement gap, all while installing curricula with a richness rivaled only by elite private schools and those in the most upscale suburbs.
But I find with Francis Bacon, some of the things were in the place, and someone who was connected with these schools of thought, and someone who had a motivation that equals the scope of the comedy and the tragedy in the plays.
I got into Goldman really by acquisition because I had gone – I grew up in east New York in the Linden Projects – I did go to fancy schools, but my resume wasn’t up to a Wall Street set of resumes. I went to college. I went to law school and practiced for a while.
I think that the best things that governments can do for productivity is not whack on new taxes and, if we can get institutions like schools and hospitals functioning better, well that’s obviously good for the overall productiveness of our society.
This is the other thing: we make the cost of raising kids higher than it has to be just because we feel they need all this stuff, like gadgets, certain schools, and activities that are nice but aren’t really necessary.
Most American elementary schools and high schools, and nearly all colleges and universities, teach everything that is significant from a liberal/Left perspective.
Republicans get a lot of money from big business, but they are not tied to the union dollar. As a result they have been aggressive advocates of school reform, charter schools and vouchers for private schools.
I would argue that the charter schools are really good at building programming and curriculum around the issues and the interests of the kids that they serve.
I think every athlete should give back to schools. I know athletes donate and have things that they give charity to, but, at the end of the day, it’s the younger generation that we need to be helping.
The relationships that people have – that are sexual, psychological, emotional – these relationships are not open to supervision by parents, schools, churches, or government. Nobody has any right to intervene at all in any kind of relationship like that.
We’re so mixed up about religion in this culture. We say the Pledge of Allegiance, ‘under God indivisible,’ but there’s no prayer in the schools. I would be so untethered without my personal faith. I wouldn’t be able to go through a day – but that’s my own experience.
Like it or not, I’ve come to appreciate soccer. Any kid can play, which fits with the inclusive agenda of progressive schools. Although the corollary to ‘any kid can play’ is that every kid must play because there is an iron grip to the warm hug of progressive inclusionism.
I write about kids growing up, I write a lot about schools and parents, and all of my experiences with those things have been suburban experiences.
I’m a huge fan of music in schools and music education because that’s how I grew up.
There is always frustration from people who work in schools that things keep changing but it is an unfortunate truth with the world of work changing as rapidly as it is, we do have to change.
I come from a very close class. I lucked out because drama schools are often very competitive… I have fourteen classmates.
Bullying needs to have more attention, and there needs to be more open communication in schools to make kids feel comfortable enough to speak up.
No, the czar did not want us in the schools.
I went to high schools in four different countries. The gift is that you can constantly reinvent yourself. I still feel that freedom. One day, I’ll wear a dress I got in India; the next, Converse sneakers and jeans.
I’d like to keep our kids in their schools. I’d like to keep our young men and women in jobs.
Direct Grants, private schools which took huge numbers of state pupils, involved effective co-operation between state and private sectors – a thing all modern governments claim they want. So why were they abolished? And why aren’t they now restored?
I saw how many people were poor and how many kids my age went to school hungry in the morning, which I don’t think most of my contemporaries in racially segregated schools in the South thought very much about at the time.
I’m all in favor of supporting fancy museums and elite schools, but face it: These aren’t really charities as most people understand the term.
In elementary school, we all say, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.’ In high school, we should say, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say, shut your mouth.’ So that’s what I’m telling high schools all around the world.
We still have many neighborhoods that are racially identified. We still have many schools that even though the days of state-enforced segregation are gone, segregation because of geographical boundaries remains.
In many countries, schools are preparing students to participate in a democratic environment; yet schools themselves tend to be extremely autocratic, with all high-level decisions being made by adults.
The idea there were kids out there who didn’t love to read and write just as much as I did struck me. So I went around schools and tried to make other kids love to read and write.
And lastly, the political revolutions from 1911 to the present time have done more to bring about tremendous social changes everywhere than even the economic and industrial changes and the new schools.
If, in schools, we keep teaching that history is divided into American history and Chinese history and Russian history and Australian history, we’re teaching kids that they are divided into tribes. And we’re failing to teach them that we also, as human beings, share problems that we need to work together with.
I feel that schools and corporates should help the government in popularising sports in the country. Blaming the government for every sporting debacle will not be fair.
There has been a growing consensus across the country – from statehouses to the White House and the halls of Congress – that we need to take dramatic steps to improve our secondary schools.
There are different types of talents and intelligences, and traditional schools sometimes ignore the creative ones. It is important for us to give kids every platform for them to find what they are good at and what they love. The arts also provide a space for newfound creativity.
I don’t think about the gender thing very much. But when I speak at schools, I’ve had female students say to me afterwards, “I never envisioned myself being a director, since I’ve never seen women do it.” But after seeing me, they can picture themselves directing, so maybe we’ll see more female directors.
Our schools too often want to shut people up so they can’t talk about real solutions. People who think differently tend to clam up because they think something is wrong with their ideas.
Why don’t we have enough teachers of math and science in the public schools? One answer is well, if they knew the subject well, they’d also know enough to work for Google or Goldman Sachs or God knows where.
It was generally believed that Catholics were not interested in arts and science graduate schools. They weren’t going to be intellectuals. And so I put the theses to the test. And they all collapsed.
I’m an advocate of music in schools. It’s important to me that music is in as many schools as possible across this country and across the world. I think that it’s a lost art form because kids aren’t as exposed to it as maybe they used to be, or should be. I was exposed heavily to jazz and that’s why I love it.
We’ve taken some performing arts schools on the set of ‘Breaking Bad.’
There is so much that is positive, wonderful even, about state schools. At a state school your kids will learn to live alongside and appreciate other kids from many diverse and different cultures.
I don’t like schools. And I mean, you have to call on all your friends to get them into their schools.
If a person wants to be publicly gay, they should not be teaching in the public schools.
Also, if we take back our schools and concentrate on improving them so our children get a better education, they will be better trained to compete for a job locally.
Our public schools began as ministries of the church; now it is time to return them to the Lord.
Catholic schools prepare every student to meet the challenges of their future by developing their mind, yes, but also their body and their soul and spirit.
When I first came to Los Angeles, I was a teacher in Compton. I know how in need schools are around the country.
When you have all these new police officers and resource officers coming into schools, what I’m worried is going to happen is we’re going to increase the school-to-prison pipeline, which disproportionately affects students of color and lower social status.
If people grow things themselves, their children understand, then schools in the area know that this community’s generating something with its own energy, to consume.
I went to several different grade schools all over the West Coast. I got polio when I was 8 and spent eight months in the hospital and a rehab clinic in Seattle.
The long-term policies that will be most effective all have to do with investment: investing in ourselves, investing in opportunities, creating good schools, and creating situations where people can acquire skills that enable them to be successful.
One of the things that is very silly – and I hear from educators all the time – is that schools essentially teach kids to learn. They don’t need school for that. Learning is what they do best.
When I was ten, I went to seven schools in one year in Nova Scotia. Me and my mum moved there so that I could be closer to my dad, who is an ice-truck driver, but it didn’t work out.
Research shows that there is only half as much variation in student achievement between schools as there is among classrooms in the same school. If you want your child to get the best education possible, it is actually more important to get him assigned to a great teacher than to a great school.
During the days of segregation, there was not a place of higher learning for African Americans. They were simply not welcome in many of the traditional schools. And from this backward policy grew the network of historical black colleges and universities.
The need for improved technical support in schools has expanded as the Government and schools have increased their investment in information and communications technologies.
Because most of my career in the classroom has been at art schools (beginning at Bennington in the 1970s), I am hyper-aware of the often grotesque disconnect between commentary on the arts and the actual practice or production of the arts.
Competition among schools is always a great motivator.
The causes of youth violence are working parents who put their kids into daycare, the teaching of evolution in the schools, and working mothers who take birth control pills.
To make a film like ‘The Grandmaster,’ I know I’m not going to make just a standard kung-fu film; it’s not going to be just tricks or like wire works. So I spent seven years on the road interviewing different schools and a lot of real grandmasters from Chinese martial arts.
There are schools teaching ‘stage decoration‘ as a subject, and they actually call it that. I say: ‘Burn those schools!’
There is a shortage of teachers but the January 2001 schools census showed that teacher numbers were at their highest level than at any time since 1984 – and 11,000 higher than 1997.
I was 5-6, a little chubby, spot-up 3-point shooter. So I couldn’t blame the schools for not recruiting me. But then my junior year, I was 5-11, hit a little growth spurt.
If there was a distraction I’d get up and jump out the window. I was quite out of hand. In schools like that I don’t think they expect that girls are going to behave in such an outrageous fashion.
Bain also asked Kansas City for a $3 million tax break. The Bain executives were taking home $36 million in borrowed funds and were asking Kansas City to forfeit $3 million in public money for police officers, roads and schools? More free stuff!
Public schools are not simply being corporatized, they are also subjected increasingly to a militarizing logic that disciplines the bodies of young people, especially low income and poor minorities, and shapes their desires and identities in the service of military values and social relations.
I am most interested in the outcomes at schools and school districts and ensuring that all kids are prepared for college and a career in the 21st-century job market.
I want to see more sports in schools.
Teachers say their schools of education did not adequately prepare them for the classroom. They would have welcomed more mentoring and feedback in their early years.
Schools serving disadvantaged students need more time to help these students catch up and gain the core academic skills they will need to succeed in our economy and society.
One of the reasons I chose Tufts is that they have one of the best veterinary schools in the country. Since I was six years old, I wanted to be a veterinarian.
I wouldn’t change my childhood for anything. The Dutch are really nice people. The schools were great.
I didn’t go to school much. I was thrown out of different schools, and my university is the street.
In traditional schools, you’re penalized for making a mistake. But that won’t work in the new information culture, in the digital world we live in today.
One of our key strategies has been to restructure traditional high schools into small learning communities with personalized attention and a range of options.
I really think the single most important thing to remember about trying to fix the schools is that there is no such thing as an instant result.
Even schools for Negroes, then, are places where they must be convinced of their inferiority.
Many of the original New Deal programs required heavy manual labor. WPA workers built hundreds of schools, health clinics, roads, park facilities, and community centers. Much of what we now call our ‘infrastructure’ – highways, buildings, power plants, etc. – is here thanks to thousands of WPA workers.
I always felt like my value was much more in my intellect than it was in my appearance, and so that’s what I spent time cultivating. And some of that I get from my mother, some of that comes from the schools that I went to, and some of that comes from probably insecurity.
When someone has the desire to go to school and has the ability but can’t get into our schools, that’s wrong. Education drives the economy and the quality of life.
Many of the mainstream agricultural scientists, especially at the agricultural schools, but at all of our major universities, are tied into all sorts of contractual relationships and consulting relationships with the life science companies.
The only way to ensure that our promise to provide every opportunity for students with disabilities, and help them achieve their full potential, is to give our schools the dollars they need.
Maybe this will be the beginning of a trend? Flat taxes, cutting foreign aid, a referendum on Europe, grammar schools. Who knows?
Charter schools are public schools that operate, to a certain extent, outside the system. They have more control over their teachers, curriculum and resources. They also have less money than public schools.
I went to big, broken, under-resourced public schools, but we had a real sense of community, because those were days in the ’50s and the ’60s when every child was under the jurisdiction of every single adult on the block.
Instead of just giving lip service to improving our schools, I will actually put the kids first and the teachers union behind in giving our kids better teachers, better options and better choices for a better future.
From a viable economy to the full funding of Headstart, from a clean environment to true equality for women, from a strong military to a commitment to racial brotherhood, from schools that are honored to streets free of excessive violence.
I come from Montana, and in eastern Montana we have a lot of dirt between light bulbs. It is expensive trying to bring the new technologies to smaller schools to upgrade their technologies to take advantage of distance learning.
We are fortunate to live an area that is blessed with outstanding schools and educators. We are proud of the quality of education that they provide to local students.
I wanted to find ways for colleges and universities to become involved with public schools to help young people prepare for college.
I have a Web site that parents and girls can use to learn about Title IX and take action if they find their school is not in compliance. Thirty years after Title IX passed, 80 percent of schools are not in compliance.
I am an Air Force brat who grew up at various Air Force bases. I changed six schools in about five years and got stability for the first time when I was sent to a boarding school, Rishi Valley. I lived outside of a cantonment-style living and was among an eclectic mix of kids and got exposed to books and other things.
Schools are successful only insofar as they reduce the dependence of a child’s opportunities upon his social origins.
I always wished I could move around and switch schools. It was hard to have these radical transformations. You’d think, ‘I will be a totally different person tomorrow,’ but it never worked.
Whenever we’ve seen the kids in the most disadvantaged context truly excel, always it’s been in classrooms and in whole schools where there is a clear vision of where the kids have the potential to be.
The majority of the high schools and the public schools in N.Y.C. don’t even have band programs. Hip-hop in a lot of ways is an outgrowth of a lack of instruments and a desire to play music, so we can’t really fault the kids for that.
I am personally interested in more than just business schools. However, life has been good to me, and it’s been good to me through a business career. I think the chance to help strengthen the foundation of young people going into business, as I did, just appeals to me.
Black people are victims of an enormous amount of violence. None of those things can take place without the complicity of the people who run the schools and the city.
I was on the San Diego school board for 4 years, where I watched children successfully matriculate into elementary schools from Head Start programs from all around our city.
Many more schools can be outstanding.
I’m not to eager to play tennis in my spare time. I’m more interested in doing gym work and stuff like that. We have a lot of schools and courts around where I live, so if I really want to play, I don’t need to go too far.
There were schools and hospitals who were ready to take people with undescribed injuries, but not necessarily ready to take people with severe radiation poisoning.
As education and employment secretary in 1997, I inherited hundreds of schools where the roofs leaked, the windows rattled, and they relied entirely on outside toilets.
Hunger, inadequate medical care, poor housing, and inferior schools are enemies of the sense of wonder. It is easier and less expensive in the long run to prevent a loss of imagination by providing adequate nutrition, housing, medical care, and schooling than it is to try to restore that loss.
Schools and parents can team up to find books that kids will really get excited about – that will make them say, ‘That was a great experience. Now I know why people get excited about reading.’
At a moderate calculation, among a million of persons inhabiting the metropolis, there are, at least, twenty-five thousand children who attend these schools, and cost their parents as many pounds sterling, per annum.
If black people use their resources properly, they can become as competitive as any group in society – take control of our neighborhoods, our businesses, our schools, including our teachers. The only thing keeping black people from doing it is this idiotic idea about integration, about being racially balanced.
Social class has worked for years. Born into the right family, go to the right schools, even if you’re not super bright to start with, you’ll turn out bright. You go to the right university, you get the right job, you have the right connections, you’ll make it to the top. Job done, very efficient.
The number one reason I write is to come to schools and see my readers. I would do it for free.
Universal suffrage should rest upon universal education. To this end, liberal and permanent provision should be made for the support of free schools by the State governments, and, if need be, supplemented by legitimate aid from national authority.
It’s important for schools to encourage sports.
Erudition – that is, reading, writing, and arithmetic – is taught in the schools; but where is the more important quality, character, taught? Nowhere in particular. There is no authorized training for children in character.
Some people need a targeted kind of learning. They need a different approach, like charter schools. There are virtual classrooms that some will do well in. The reality is, if there are no options, if there is just one particular standard, then someone is going to fall through the cracks, as we’ve seen.
We can pay teachers a hundred thousand dollars a year, and we’ll do nothing to improve our schools as long as we keep the A, B, C, D, F grading system.
There should be regulation that prevents all schools, not just state schools, from teaching creationism because it is indoctrination, it is planting ideas into children’s heads. We should be teaching children to be much more open-minded.
Schools and libraries are the twin cornerstones of a civilized society. Libraries are only good if people use them, like books only exist when someone reads them.
Can you believe approximately 17 percent of American children ages 2 to 19 years are obese? How about this fact: approximately 60 percent of overweight children ages 5 to 10 already have at least one risk factor for heart disease? We are all to blame for this – parents, schools, kids – all of us.
We have been supporting GIS in schools for more than 25 years.
Today, I marvel at the vegan foods in the supermarket, at the cruelty-free clothing choices in stores, and at the fantastic alternatives to dissection in schools, the modern ways to test medicines without killing rabbits and beagles, the many forms of entertainment involving purely human performers.
Attention is the fundamental instrument we use for learning, thinking, communicating, deciding, yet neither parents nor schools spend any time helping young people learn how to manage information streams and control the ways they deploy their attention.
I think the big mistake in schools is trying to teach children anything, and by using fear as the basic motivation. Fear of getting failing grades, fear of not staying with your class, etc. Interest can produce learning on a scale compared to fear as a nuclear explosion to a firecracker.
The system decides you can’t run schools in the summer.
Violence is a problem we all want to solve. I want to make sure that kids learn to deal with anger by learning how to talk with people to solve problems. Here in the United States Senate I want to make sure we have safe schools, safe neighborhoods and good things for kids to do after school!
And I think that we in America need to understand that many schools need improvement, and particularly with respect to how they’re serving minority children.
I’ve been in elementary education for years and my belief is that Christmas pageants in schools are little more than conditioning kids for the Christian religion.
When schools produce students who learned to think on the left or on the right, they’re not thinking for themselves.
And there should not be a limit on the creation of new public schools. We ought to expand choices for parents.
I got to college and saw all of my friends going to these other schools and thought, ‘You know, college is just a blank slate.’ And I had an opportunity to go to different schools, but I chose Brown because it was unique and allowed you to be yourself as an individual and like I said, it’s a blank slate.
President Obama and Secretary Duncan have made stronger teacher evaluation a key part of their education reform efforts. Under their signature plan, called ‘Race to the Top,’ states can win federal support for schools by improving teacher evaluations.
I tell you what Hispanics in Virginia tell me they want. They want access to the American dream. That’s why they come here to Virginia and to America, so they want more opportunities to start small business, better schools.
Business schools need to address students on a human being level, not as cogs in the machine to supply fresh talent to big companies.
I worked as a head cook at courthouses and high schools. I left it behind when I started getting into my music real heavy.
I have wanted to be a fine artist painter, and I reached the point in art schools were I’d like to understand more about images and how images communicate information to people. And I was not getting very far in that from my professors.
And, in the case of schools, or anything else, if you have something that is forcing you to do better than you did the day before, it makes you look forward and it makes you think in a way that’s going to make the product better, which is the students and the education.
There happen to be a lot of people around who spent an hour on the Internet and think they know a lot of physics, but it doesn’t work like that… There’s a reason there are graduate schools in these departments.
I think the Republicans are subverted by the fact that so many of their leaders send their kids to private schools, they don’t really have the stomach for the fight.
The public schools tend to teach little kids from when they are very young about the whole universe without God and that God cannot be in science. They are indoctrinating children in an atheistic religious view of things.
I was born in Columbia in 1954, the year the Supreme Court invalidated racial segregation in public schools. I visited frequently but did not live there.
When state funding for Irvine public schools began to diminish some time ago, my Irvine Company colleagues helped me to provide private funding support for continuation of basic science, art and music programs that had been eliminated by lack of state funding.
I’ve focused on making sure we have talented teachers and principals in our schools through proposals like the GREAT Teachers and Principals Act and the Presidential Teachers Corps.
Some people think that there aren’t many Aboriginal actors around, and if there are, they’re not that good. It’s stupid. There’s such an incredible pool of talent out there, and they’re still coming out of drama schools. People just need to take a leap of faith.
I started my own martial arts school at 16. And by the time I was 21, I had three different schools.
Far too many bright, motivated kids are being badly served by their educational experiences – ones at elite, wealthy schools as well as underfunded ones.
I was in a bookstore one afternoon, and I stumbled across this book called ‘A Guide to Film Schools.’ I always loved movies growing up and had never even conceived that it was something you could do for a living. Realizing most of them were in Los Angeles and knowing that was warm, I ended up applying.
I had a great drama teacher, and he sort of made out drama school as this incredibly difficult thing to get into: 6,000 people apply every year, and some of the schools only have 12 places. It’s a phenomenally difficult thing to get into. And that excited me – I wanted that challenge.
I speak for a lot of church groups, youth groups, schools, colleges and do personal appearances. I’ve done conventions and trade shows. A lot of different little hats.
From the early 1960s to the mid-1980s – the era of military dictatorship when South Korea was rebuilding itself from a postwar economic basket case to a humming, modern nation – military schools were the track of choice for ambitious young men.
I taught for 17 years in an inner city comprehensive schools.
My dad was in the army so we moved around a lot and I changed schools every year and had to make new friends, and I found that if I was the funny guy I could do that easier.
Technologically we can deliver the ability of parents to be able to log into a school intranet, be able to see what homework has been set or look at lesson planning, whether the child is attending, see what the timetable is like, all of that is possible and there are some schools that are doing it already.
Girls should be made aware of the dark reality of human trafficking, right from a young age. High schools and colleges should provide this education, too.
I would like to teach music. It’s weird the way they teach music in schools like Julliard these days.
Many well-meaning intelligent people have argued since the May 17, 1954, decision of the United States Supreme Court outlawing segregation in the public schools that communication between the races has broken down.
I don’t believe the most successful people are the ones who got the best grades, got into the best schools, or made the most money.
If we allow public funds to be used to support our relatively benign, morally grounded schools, we will have to allow those public funds to be used for any type of private school.
Consumer groups fought hard to provide investor protections for ‘special entities‘ such as pension funds, schools, and municipalities who purchase swaps. No comparable protection exists in the futures market.
The foundation for future prosperity is built on the bedrock of good jobs and great schools. We are building a strong foundation one job at a time and one educated Texan at a time.
Weapons of mass destruction violate more than individual lives – they cross international borders and jeopardize all people. They also drain resources that could be used instead for medicines, schools and other life-saving supplies. We must come together with even greater determination to prevent a WMD nightmare.
We all have a role to play – the President, Congress, parents, students and schools – in making college affordable and keeping the middle class dream alive.
I realized some time ago that, while there are really, really high quality schools in urban India – my daughter attends one – there are very few high quality schools in rural India. And that is mostly because of the perception that there are not enough people to pay a reasonable fee in rural India.
I’d like thousands of schools as good as the one I went to, Eton.
The phenomenon of home schooling is a wonderful example of the American can-do attitude. Growing numbers of parents have become disenchanted with government-run public schools. Many parents have simply taken matters into their own hands, literally.
The reality of growing up is we changed schools so many times, my brother was my best friend. We have a five-year age gap, and my brother inspired me. He started boxing, and I just want to show that I could do things better than him.
We ask why there is violence in our schools, but we have systematically removed God from our schools.
I have seen girls tackle every single big problem from cancer to lead poisoning to climate change to homelessness to bullying in schools. There is literally no problem that we can’t solve.
There is, however, a change going on in the world. There’s far more interest in drawing now than there has been in a long, long time. Schools are beginning to teach drawing again in a serious and meaningful way.
It’s good to pay high taxes – you have free schools, free universities. It’s a much more decent society than those where everybody pays their own way, and some people don’t get anything.
I talked to a few schools about playing football, but I had already pretty much made my mind up. I fell in love with baseball at a young age, and I knew that that’s what I wanted to do.
Let’s be under no illusions: There are attacks on, for example, transgender Americans from the Oval Office, picking on troops – people willing to lay down their lives for this country – not to mention teenagers in our high schools. So we’ve got to end the war on trans Americans.
I was just lucky enough to grow up in a time when they actually had drama departments in schools.
Before the eighth grade, I probably went to seven or eight different schools.
More combat planes, missiles and soldiers won’t provide additional bread for our families, desks for our schools, or medicine for our clinics.
Told that the passing grade is a B or competence and that we will help you to get there, students do competent work. The lowest passing grade in the real world is competence. Why do schools accept so much less?
Jails and prisons are the complement of schools; so many less as you have of the latter, so many more must you have of the former.
Maryland is one of the greatest schools that we have in this country.
Since the conception of our country, America has held that parents, not schools, teachers, and certainly not courts, hold the primary responsibility of educating their children.
Schools connect children to their communities. Jobs connect adults to their societies. Persons with autism deserve to walk the same path.
I did attend Catholic schools up to the ninth grade, and I admire much in the Catholic Church.
Schools are not equal. There are still the haves and the have-nots.
When a nation is over-reliant on one or two commodities like oil or precious minerals, corrupt government ministers and their dodgy associates hoard profits and taxes instead of properly allocating them to schools and hospitals.
It was the courts, of course, that took away prayer from our schools, that took away Bible reading from our schools. It’s the courts that gave us same-sex marriage. So it is quite a battlefield, and the Supreme Court is the highest court in the land.
I went to regular schools and I was home schooled a lot but I don’t have any history in schools. Like, I literally don’t exist. I didn’t even get a birth certificate until the mid-80s. I always feel like I could be, like, 10 years younger, or maybe I’m 70!
Addressing climate change globally promotes health, education and gender equality. Addressing it domestically secures U.K. jobs and sustainable clean economic growth; it protects communities from flooding and the scandal of fuel poverty. It begins to see clean air flow in our cities and schools.
I’m for prayer in schools.
All schools will end up using game metrics in the future.
By 2050, the Australian population is expected to grow from 22 million to 36 million. That increase alone will put huge pressure on our towns and our cities. We will need more homes, more roads, more rail lines, more hospitals, more schools, just to accommodate so many Australians.
Having a dad in the service was helpful. I was forever meeting new kids, going to new schools, moving to new neighborhoods. I was encouraged when I attended the American School in Germany.
I’ve studied various schools of thought… I acknowledge that some Muslims consider music prohibited, but I’ve found a lot of evidence from the life of the Prophet to show that he allowed certainly, but even encouraged, music at certain times.
I attended private Catholic schools in Paris and Los Angeles through high school.
Education is my next big thing. When music and art were taken out of the schools, I went berserk!
With acting, I started very young, and I’d performed for a lot of children in boarding schools, late at night after the dormitory lights were out. I’d have a flashlight, and I’d be Count Dracula, or Shakespeare, or Yogi Bear, and leap from bunk to bunk. I loved the laughter; I liked the way it made people feel.
I am a very instinctive Conservative. I have created a welfare system where it pays to work. I have created independent schools within the state sector bringing excellence to children wherever they are.
Most business schools are geared toward churning out investment bankers and management consultants.
Before I got through high school I had attended 22 different schools. In the time before I was well acquainted with the latest school, I would amuse myself by drawing and found that I was pretty good at it.
