Something to Think About

Is preparing children for college or the workplace (as some believe) the main reason why we need good schools?  Or is it something else?  The following quote from noted educational historian Diane Ravitch provides anyone pondering this pivotal question something to think about: “Unless the schools provide our children with a vision of human possibility that enlightens and empowers them with knowledge and taste, they will simply play their role in someone else’s marketing schemes.  Unless they understand deeply the sources of our democracy, they will take it for granted and fail to exercise their rights and responsibilities.”
