Quote: “I agree with Abraham Lincoln, who is reputed to have said that the philosophy of the classroom today is the philosophy of the government tomorrow. We will indeed reap what we teach, or neglect to teach, in our classrooms. That is why it is critical to the progress, and even ultimately to the survival, of our state and nation that we instill in our young people the right morals and sufficient knowledge to be both well-educated and good citizens.”
