Today's Education Quote

"We were told that children must be motivated to learn, and if they aren't motivated, it's the teacher's fault. That was a lie, and a big one. It reckoned without the hard fact that the basis of all real learning is fear."

-Richard Peck (author of the Newbery Medal book A Year Down Yonder)
