Creative Quotations about Education Awesome Collection

{YBA} Study and reading improves a child’s writing ability. While it is easy to say that a speaker is a good one just by listening to his pronunciation and delivery, not all good speakers are good writers.

There are good speakers but when it’s time for them to write, they find it hard to construct good written sentences. But a person who is good in writing, is most probably, good in speaking as well.

To improve a child’s writing skills, it is important to expose him to the correct and formal usage of language through the published books that he reads.

I read Shakespeare and the Bible, and I can shoot dice.  That’s what I call a liberal education.

A child educated only at school is an uneducated child.

incomplete and very often false, misleading, fictitious, mendacious – just dead wrong.

15. Leighann Lord
Did you know America ranks the lowest in education but the highest in drug use?  It’s nice to be number one, but we can fix that.  All we need to do is start the war on education.  If it’s anywhere near as successful as our war on drugs, in no time we’ll all be hooked on phonics.
