Life is but one continual course of instruction. The hand of the parent writes on the heart of the child the first faint characters which time deepens into strength so that nothing can efface them.
Public education is a great instrument of social change. Through it, if we so desire, we can make our country more nearly a democracy without classes.....Education is a social process, perhaps the most important process in determining the future of our country, it should command a far larger portion of our national income than it does today.
