Who is barbara bowman?

Famous quotes containing the words barbara bowman and/or barbara:

    Although good early childhood programs can benefit all children, they are not a quick fix for all of society’s ills—from crime in the streets to adolescent pregnancy, from school failure to unemployment. We must emphasize that good quality early childhood programs can help change the social and educational outcomes for many children, but they are not a panacea; they cannot ameliorate the effects of all harmful social and psychological environments.
    Barbara Bowman (20th century)

    It was in and about the Martinmas time,
    When the green leaves were afalling,
    That Sir John Graeme, in the West Country,
    Fell in love with Barbara Allan.
    —Unknown. Bonny Barbara Allan (l. 1–4)
