Education quotes

To the uneducated, an A is just three sticks. ~A.A. Milne

Education is a better safeguard of liberty than a standing army. ~Edward Everett

He who opens a school door, closes a prison. ~Victor Hugo

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you gain at one end you lose at the other. ~Mark Twain

Education is simply the soul of a society as it passes from one generation to another. ~G.K. Chesterton

Well we all know how important good education is to GINO...Piper barely goes to school, Bristol is a HS dropout, Track???Who knows?
And little Trig is he getting special ed. for his needs??? Course we saw him being carried around like a sack of potato's and a prop during the campaign.
No wonder she turned down stimulus money for something (in her eyes) as unimportant as Education.

With Alaska's dropout rate at 8% (twice the national average) and only one state with a higher dropout rate (Arizona!) you would think that at least the legislators would make education a priority, and I hope they do. I can understand why Sarah wouldn't. She doesn't want anyone more educated than she is because they might begin to figure her out.
