Today's Favorite Quote

Came across this in my reading today:
But I think we have an obligation to empower those we teach to understand that this democracy is very much a work in progress and that if they can't achieve the skills to take an active role as citizens in struggles to bring progress in their grown-up years, the injustices they suffer now will never change. (Jonathan Kozol, Letters to a Young Teacher, p. 155)
If that doesn't put into perspective the importance of education, I don't know what does.
