Made Participate

In many countries, schools are preparing students to participate in a democratic environment; yet schools themselves tend to be extremely autocratic, with all high-level decisions being made by adults.

- Adora Svitak

About Uninformed

I'm 53. I don't care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed.

- Alan Ball

Having Inspiring

Having students was so inspiring.

- Alex Guarnaschelli

Larger Attend

Everyone praises Harvard 'for the students.' But what makes Harvard's students so great is that they are, in many ways, a cross-section of the larger world. They are normal people who happen to be excellent, and this sets them apart. People who go to Yale go because they want to attend Yale. People who go to Harvard go because they can.

- Alexandra Petri

Love Teaching

Howard Zinn was magical as a teacher. Witty, irreverent, and wise, he loved what he was teaching and clearly wanted his students to love it, also.

- Alice Walker

Interesting Kind

There is a kind of belief among my students that things that are true are interesting. But most things that are true are not interesting. Four pages describing how I got up and brushed my teeth in the morning would kill you.

- Alistair MacLeod

Next Graduates

Grades can matter, especially for those students and parents who live for the next round of applications to graduate or professional schools. But there's a problem with the grade emphasis. Math or science graduates earn more than students majoring in the humanities.

- Amity Shlaes

Description Some

When I'm not the Tiger Mom, I'm a professor at Yale Law School, and if one thing is clear to me from years of teaching, it's that there are many ways to produce fabulous kids. I have amazing students; some of them have strict parents, others have lenient parents, and many come from family situations that defy easy description.

- Amy Chua

Education Access

A large number of students around the world don't really have access to high quality education. So, launching EdX allows students all over the world to have much better access to a high quality education from a university such as Harvard, MIT, Berkeley and others as we add more universities.

- Anant Agarwal

College Want

Not many college students know what they want to do.

- Andie MacDowell

Want Which

Older students know what they want, which is good.

- Andre Aciman

Mars Advise

I advise all my novel students to write in the company of 'Veronica Mars.'

- Andrea Seigel

Motivation Had

Most of my teachers wanted to send me to the principal's office. But my fourth-grade teacher once put her arms around me and said, 'You sure write well.' And I've had good penmanship until this day. She was the only one who ever said anything nice to me. That's the kind of motivation that students need.

- Andrew Young

Other Part

Most teachers, when surveyed, say that it is part of their job to help students develop things like grit. This is especially true at the elementary and middle school levels. They feel it's part of their vocation to teach other things that are not formally academic content.

- Angela Duckworth

Chance Learn

Once in a while, I have the chance to speak to students. I learn from them as much as they learn from me. It's a great dialogue to create.

- Ann Callis

Broadway TV

A lot of high school students on TV and in Broadway are played by people in their late 20s and even early 30s. That seems weird to me.

- Ansel Elgort

Education Capital

When the students are occupied, they're not juvenile delinquents. I believe that education is a capital investment.

- Arlen Specter

More Range

To encourage more top-caliber students to choose teaching, teachers should be paid a lot more, with starting salaries more in the range of $60,000 and potential earnings of as much as $150,000.

- Arne Duncan

Education Big

I do think that a school day that matches the work day makes a lot of difference for working families, but the big driver of this effort is education. Period. We have a lot of students not gaining the skills they need, and it is pretty clear that school does not offer enough time to get that job done.

- Chris Gabrieli

Country Anthem

The crudest thing I've done as a teacher was to require students to write a national anthem for their country and sing it themselves.

- Chris Van Allsburg

Education Before

And, in the case of schools, or anything else, if you have something that is forcing you to do better than you did the day before, it makes you look forward and it makes you think in a way that's going to make the product better, which is the students and the education.

- Craig Benson

Teach How

The Technion didn't teach students how to open a start-up.

- Dan Shechtman

About Half

I have everything that I could possibly want in life, from a gorgeous granddaughter and a wonderful wife, brilliant students, the best job anyone could hope for, and about half of my hair. Not the half I would have kept, but no one consulted me.

- Daniel Gilbert

Love Young

Children are amazing, and while I go to places like Princeton and Harvard and Yale, and of course I teach at Columbia, NYU, and that's nice and I love students, but the most fun of all are the real little ones, the young ones.

- David Dinkins

Trying Professors

Instead of educating students, these professors are trying to indoctrinate them.

- David Horowitz

Game Weeks

During the final two weeks of training, our students work simulated game situations in which our staff members role-play as players, managers, and coaches. They are given immediate feedback following each camp game.

- Jim Evans

Informed Analyze

By giving students the proper tools to analyze the media they consume, we can empower them to make informed decisions.

- John Pople

Idea I Think

I think a lot of people don't have any idea of how deeply segregated our schools have become all over again. Most textbooks are not honest in what they teach our high school students.

- Jonathan Kozol

Love Happy

My students often say, 'My roommate read this story and really liked it,' and it's hard to convince them that there are things wrong with it. I say, 'Well, people who love you want you to be happy. But I'm your professor and I'm supposed to be teaching you something.'

- Joyce Carol Oates

Academics Hire

We don't hire students who are just good at academics.

- Julie Sweet

Every Day Almost

Students teach all sorts of things but most importantly they make explicit the courage that it takes to be a learner, the courage it takes to open yourself to the transformative power of real learning and that courage I am exposed to almost every day at MIT and that I'm deeply grateful for.

- Junot Diaz

Other Very

Now, it's my belief that Python is a lot easier than to teach to students programming and teach them C or C++ or Java at the same time because all the details of the languages are so much harder. Other scripting languages really don't work very well there either.

- Guido van Rossum

Doing Works

One works in one's laboratory - one's chaotic laboratory - with students and colleagues, doing what one most wants to do - then all this happens! It is overwhelming.

- Haldan Keffer Hartline

Years Weekends

When high school students ask to spend their afternoons and weekends in my laboratory, I am amazed: I didn't develop that kind of enthusiasm for science until I was 28 years old.

- Harold E. Varmus

Say Real Power

Neither, I must say with all due respect, is it the power of teachers and students. Basically the true and real power is with working people of all colors, of all beliefs, of all national origins.

- Harry Bridges

About Your

How do you manage your online identity? It's something I talk about with my students all the time.

- Hasan M. Elahi

Around Leaders

Unlike many graduate fellowships, the Rhodes seeks leaders who will 'fight the world's fight.' They must be more than mere bookworms. We are looking for students who wonder, students who are reading widely, students of passion who are driven to make a difference in the lives of those around them and in the broader world.

- Heather Wilson

Prepare Classes

As educators, we are only as effective as what we know. If we have no working knowledge of what students studied in previous years, how can we build on their learning? If we have no insight into the curriculum in later grades, how can we prepare learners for future classes?

- Heidi Hayes Jacobs

Practice Methods

Without question, students need to practice, review, and drill skills, but they should do so only in the spirit of working toward more complex mastery of those skills. Redundant drill of skills is inherently boring and insulting to the learner, and it is one of the most effective methods for turning students off to learning.

- Heidi Hayes Jacobs

About Rooms

Feeling pummeled by the outside pounding of tests and standards, a teacher can easily hide and simply turn to the immediacy of the classroom. It is not surprising that many teachers burrow in their rooms with all that they know about their students. There is no place to take the information.

- Heidi Hayes Jacobs

Delivering Aide

In my teens, I worked as an aide in my community supervising and mentoring youth in various programs and delivering lunches to needy students.

- Hilda Solis

Cast Voted

When the students were killed at Kent State, the cast voted to do a demonstration from the stage, and I abstained.

- Holly Near

Reason About

I want students to understand specific technologies, but the real goal is that they should be able to reason about how systems work and be intelligently skeptical about technology so that, when they're running the world in a few years, they'll do a good job.

- Brian Kernighan

Education Out

My mother didn't set out to surround us with white students or colleagues. My mother just sought a quality education. People have these expectations of who they think you should be. And I say it's because they don't really understand Malcolm X - or his wife.

- Ilyasah Shabazz

Class Wastebasket

I told the students that whatever they did in class was for the wastebasket.

- Imogen Cunningham

Young About

Most of my ideas come from drawing patterns across conversations I have with different types of people - technology investors, young fashion design students, a CEO. This variety is stimulating and offers many different perspectives on the things I am thinking about.

- Imran Amed

Public School Our

We left my birthplace, Brooklyn, New York, in 1939 when I was 13. I enjoyed the ethnic variety and the interesting students in my public school, P.S. 134. The kids in my neighborhood were only competitive in games, although unfriendly gangs tended to define the limits of our neighborhood.

- Irwin Rose

Thought Had

I started playing piano with a little band in high school. I was terrible. I thought I had absolutely no talent. I couldn't keep time. I only got into McGill, which was a lousy music school, because they were taking American music students.

- Burt Bacharach

Benefits Equally

It is generally believed that it is the students who derive benefit by working under the guidance of a professor. In reality, the professor benefits equally by his association with gifted students working under him.

- C. V. Raman

Imports Exports

Diplomacy in a sense is the opposite of writing. You have to disperse yourself so much: the lady who comes in crying because she's had a fight with the secretary; exports and imports; students in trouble; thumbtacks for the embassy.

- Carlos Fuentes

Mostly Classes

At 16, when I was at Henry M. Gunn High School, I had a crush on the English teacher, and my grades improved dramatically. This great school had only 400 students, mostly children of Stanford professors, and it was more usual to have classes under one of the oak trees dotted around the campus than in the classroom.

- Caroline Lawrence

Teacher Doing

I tried to stir the imagination and enthusiasms of students to take risks, to do what they were most afraid of doing, to widen their horizons of action.

- James Broughton

Prefer Competent

The students I have come in contact with at Harvard are highly competent individuals who prefer to be challenged and respond well to encouragement.

- Catherine Asaro

College Cast

I went to Colby College in Waterville, ME and did picture it when I was writing 'Cum Laude.' So many of the physical details were included, like the loop where people jogged. The story of the chapel is also borrowed from Colby... but the students and cast of characters are fictional.

- Cecily von Ziegesar

Teach Sentence

It can be summed up in one sentence. Does this person have something to teach my students? No one has ever let us down.

- James Lipton

Abroad Will

When our thousands of Chinese students abroad return home, you will see how China will transform itself.

- Deng Xiaoping

Love Lives

A great teacher who is full of excitement and love for her students can make all the difference in their lives.

- Deval Patrick

Pay Raising

Teachers make a difference, and we would serve our students better by focusing on attracting and retaining the quality teachers by raising teacher pay.

- Jeb Bush

College Became

While I was there I became deeply interested in photography, and indeed the most noteworthy event in my early life was winning first, third, fourth and seventh prizes in an international competition for college and high school students.

- Douglass North

Feel Part

High school students ought to seek out campus communities where they feel not only empowered to engage their talents, but also challenged to leave their comfort zones. The ability to embrace new opportunities emerges, in part, from a willingness to take risks and to fail.

- Drew Gilpin Faust

Next Prepared

The students that, like the wild animal being prepared for its tricks in the circus called 'life', expects only training as sketched above, will be severely disappointed: by his standards he will learn next to nothing.

- Edsger Dijkstra

Other About

Students often approached me about state-paid tuition while I was out campaigning. After I explained to them that if the state pays their tuition now, they will pay higher taxes to pay other people's tuition for the rest of their lives, most of them ended up agreeing with me.

- Jesse Ventura

Always Tell

I always tell my students, 'If you walk around with your eyes and ears open, you can't possibly live long enough to write all the novels you'll encounter.'

- Jill McCorkle

Three Projects

By 1954, as an assistant professor with a group of three graduate students, I was able to initiate more complex experimental projects, dealing with the structure, stereochemistry and synthesis of natural products. As a result of the success of this research, I was appointed in 1956, at age twenty-seven, as professor of chemistry.

- Elias James Corey

Line Out

Line up a group of Horace Mann students, interview them, and take a look at their resumes, and you'll be hard pressed to pick out the students who require extra time. So then, what qualifies these students to receive special accommodations on the SAT?

- Eliot Schrefer

Peers Quo

Students raised on Park Avenue are born into family situations in which overachieving merely maintains the status quo, and therefore the market is primed for anyone offering services that provide an edge on local peers.

- Eliot Schrefer

Active Both

My parents met when they were graduate students at UC Berkeley in the 1960s. They were both active in the civil-rights movement.

- Kamala Harris

Country Been

Aside from a few master teachers that we have had over the years, this has been a completely local talent development. But people have started to come now from Chicago, we have a number of students from Chicago and different places of the country and even in the world.

- Katherine Dunham

Education Affect

Cutting NASA education funds would most severely affect students from low- to middle-income families and students from non-Ivy League-level schools.

- Emily Calandrelli

About Half

I wasn't really into body piercings until I found that about half my female students had them.

- Kathy Acker

Effort Very

My fellow students there were very smart, but the really novel thing was that they actually seemed to put a lot of effort into their school work. By the end of my first semester there, I began to get into that habit as well.

- Eric Allin Cornell

Data Next

I had many moments of disappointment, despondency, and exhaustion, but I always found that by reading the literature and showing up at my lab looking at the data as they emerged day by day and discussing them with my students and postdoctoral fellows, I would gain a notion of what to do next.

- Eric Kandel

Like Bright

Of course, MIT was notable not just for its faculty but also for its students. And, facing such extremely bright kids as a rookie teacher was something like being thrown to the wolves.

- Eric Maskin

Essence Imposed

Our public schools arbitrarily define science as explaining the world by natural processes alone. In essence, a religion of naturalism is being imposed on millions of students. They need to be taught the real nature of science, including its limitations.

- Ken Ham

Study Our

Research and development needs permanent tax credits to build the technology that spurs our growth. But no government programs alone can get America's students to study more science and math; parents must push and help their children to meet this goal.

- Ernest Istook

Created Libraries

The resources at Harvard - its professors, our fellow students, the libraries, its alumni - created for me the opportunity to pursue my passions in finance.

- Kenneth C. Griffin

Study Other

In an age of molecular genomics, it is ever more apparent that the fingerprints of evolution are pressed deeply into human DNA, just as they are into the genomes of every other organism. Biologists understand this, and so do students who study the science of life.

- Kenneth R. Miller

Nation Which

In our Nation, approximately 22.5 million children ride school buses to and from school each day, which accounts for 54 percent of all students attending grade school.

- Kenny Marchant

Work Philosophy

I have this philosophy that A and B students work for C students.

- Kenny Troutt

Work Teacher

My attitude toward graduate students was different, I must say. I used graduate students as colleagues: I gave them the best problems to work on, and I encouraged them.

- Frank Press

Own Use

Crabbed and obscure definitions are of no use beyond a narrow circle of students, of whom probably every one has a pet one of his own.

- Frederick Pollock

Three Been

When I talk with my students, I introduce a process of work I call the three R's: First comes research, then real world exploration, and finally, and perhaps most important, a fact-checking review of all that has been written.

- Lee Gutkind

Reader Cent

To be a writer, you must be a reader, yet as many as 30 per cent of my writing students were not readers.

- Garry Disher

Will Obama

Students of America, working families of America: President Obama will not turn his back on you.

- Lincoln Chafee

Reward Tremendous

I have students who are now in chairs in five continents. They invite me to their inaugurals. A tremendous reward.

- George Steiner

Mentor Critical

Many of our students say, 'We wish we had a mentor in high school. We wish we had someone we could spend more time with, who paid more attention to us, who I could sit down with and talk to when I had a problem.' So relationships are critical.

- Gerald Chertavian

Career Year

At Year Up, we have helped thousands of students rise from poverty into a professional career in a single year.

- Gerald Chertavian

Like Surrounded

I like being surrounded by students and intellectuals.

- Louis Garrel

Tell Big

I tell my students that if you have enough preparation, you can handle the big interviews. You won't be intimidated.

- Lowell Bergman

Education Through

Education must lead us from the irresponsible opinion to true responsible judgment. It must lead us from chance and arbitrariness to rational clarity and intellectual order. Therefore, let us guide our students over the road of discipline from materials, through function, to creative work.

- Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Tell Based

I tell my students, even if you are an opinion journalist, your opinion should be based on facts.

- M. Stanton Evans

Joining Each Time

In 1989, I was on Tiananmen Square with the students, living in their makeshift tents and joining their jubilant singing of the Internationale. In the two decades since, each time that I have gone back, visions from those days seem to return with increasing persistence.

- Ma Jian

Something Else

I was not a good teacher; I didn't have the sort of edge one should have on the students, so I decided to do something else.

- Terrence Malick

Sometimes About

They already know all about brands... but what 16- and 17-year-olds won't necessarily have is experience of the world of work. The more that businesses get involved with schools, the better, because businesses sometimes complain that students don't have what they require to succeed in work.

- Philip Green

Facts Hamilton

I'm just one of the kids, and all because the students at Hamilton Heights High School listened to the facts, educated their parents and themselves, and believed in me.

- Ryan White

Understand Which

The Stanford prison experiment came out of class exercises in which I encouraged students to understand the dynamics of prison life.

- Philip Zimbardo

Through Emerged

In the district of Hizan, through the influence of Shaikh Abdurrahman Tagi, known as Seyda, so many students, teachers, and scholars emerged, I was sure all Kurdistan took pride in them and their scholarly debates and wide knowledge and Sufi way. These were the people who would conquer the face of the earth!

- Said Nursi

Education Enjoy

Even the best parents have to spend so much time making ends meet that they cannot help their kids with homework or afford the extra tutoring that wealthier students enjoy. To address these unjust disparities, we need an early education revolution.

- Sal Albanese
