Quote of Personal Interest

"A word as to the education of the heart. We don't believe that this can be imparted through books; it can only be imparted through the loving touch of the teacher."

"Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?"

"The end of all education should surely be service to others."

- César E. Chávez
