More Quotes on Education Worth Quoting January 14, 2009

Posted by Beth in Education.

“In 100 years we have gone from teaching Latin and Greek
in high school to teaching Remedial English in college.”
— Joseph Sobran   (1946- ) Columnist

“If the only motive was to help people who could not afford education,
advocates of government involvement would have simply proposed tuition subsidies.”
— Milton Friedman  (1912-2006) Nobel Prize-winning economist

“Government will not fail to employ education
to strengthen its hands and perpetuate its institutions.”
— William Godwin  (1756-1836)

from Famous Quotes about Liberty

Update 01-15-09

“If it would be wrong for the government to adopt an official religion, then,
for the same reasons, it would be wrong for the government to adopt official education policies. The moral case for freedom of religion stands or falls with that for freedom of education. A society that champions freedom of religion but at the same time countenances state regulation of education has a great deal of explaining to do.”
— James R. Otteson   American philosopher, professor, author
