Famous quotes containing the word schools:

    Our good schools today are much better than the best schools of yesterday. When I was your age and a pupil in school, our teachers were our enemies.
    Can any thing ... be more painful to a friendly mind, than a necessity of communicating disagreeable intelligence? Indeed it is sometimes difficult to determine, whether the relator or the receiver of evil tidings is most to be pitied.
    Frances Burney (1752–1840)

    The shrewd guess, the fertile hypothesis, the courageous leap to a tentative conclusion—these are the most valuable coin of the thinker at work. But in most schools guessing is heavily penalized and is associated somehow with laziness.
    Jerome S. Bruner (b. 1915)
