“To educate a person in the mind but not the morals…
        is to educate a menace to society.”                         
Theodore Roosevelt

  • Many successful adults can point to a teacher who inspired or helped them through life. 

  • Education can bring wealth, and wealth is generally needed to obtain an education.  Many in the lower class have neither education nor wealth.  They need an opportunity to get an education.  "There is no guarantee that more education brings more wealth; but a recent study said that education and wealth are highly correlated, and are likely to become stronger in the coming years.  (Source:  "Key to wealth? More education, study says," Robert Frank, CNBC, May 5, 2015) 

  • "The best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person."  - Andy Rooney
