    Your friends are very precious things;
    Their love is like the rarest gem.
    But friends are hard to find and keep
    Unless you are a friend to them. Ann Cragg

    Jerome Bruner on the purpose of education: "It is to teach him to participate in the process that makes possible the establishment of knowledge. We teach a subject not to produce little living libraries on that subject, but rather to get a student to think mathematically for himself, to consider matters as a historian does, to take part in the process of knowledge-getting. Knowing is a process not a product."

    "Should we privatize our schools? Should we have national standards of assessment? How should we use computers? How shall we teach reading? And so on. . . . These questions evade the issue of what the schools are for. It is as if we are a nation of technicians, consumed by our expertise of how something should be done, afraid and incapable of thinking about why." - - Neil Postman, The end of education

    "Because we are engaged in a day-by-day process of self-invention - - not discovery, for what we search for does not exist until we find it - - both the past and the future are raw material, shaped and re-shaped by each individual... Composing a life involves continual re-imagining of the future and re-interpretation of the past to give meaning to the present, remembering best those events that prefigured what followed, forgetting those that proved to have no meaning within the narrative."

    - - Bateson, M.c, (1989). Composing a life. New York: Penguin

    “Education is not to reform students or amuse them or to make them expert technicians. It is to unsettle their minds, widen their horizons, inflame their intellects, teach them to think straight, if possible.”
