—Stephen Downes

All men who have turned out worth anything have had the chief hand in their own education.

—Sir Walter Scott

Teachers come in all conceivable forms: the newspaper columnist who examines an issue in a way you have never seen before, the basketball coach who makes you truly understand the value of discipline and teamwork, the child who trots home from school and tells you something you never knew about astronomy, Guatemala, or snowflakes.

–Bridget Sullivan

Every child is different from every other and must be educated differently.

–Jean Jacques Rousseau
