Never has teaching been more important. As our nation moves into the future, we need an education workforce if America is to remain an economic leader. ... Success in tomorrow's world economy will only be achieved by a well-educated and creative work force. Education is more important than ever before. Teaching continues to be our nation's most significant profession.

Teaching is the discipline of hope; the refusal to accept limits on what your students can learn or on what you, as a teacher (researcher, or community partner) can do to facilitate learning.

Herbert Kohl
The Discipline of Hope


Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
