Quote of Personal Interest

"There is no such thing as a neutral education process. Education either functions as an instrument which is used to faciliate the integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system, or it is the practice of freedom, the means by which [we] deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of [our] world." - Richard Shaull
