Education is More than a Piece of Paper

Sometimes people act as though an education is just a diploma. With a diploma you are ready to get a job, right? And we talk about having our graduates "workplace ready," right?

Education is more than a piece of paper. Education is more than preparation for a job.

With education we explain what we know to our children about our humanity, our civilization, our society, and the world.

Our children must know who we are and how we got here so they can cope with the world they have inherited.

Our children need the best skills we can give them to survive and flourish.

Education is the foundation for our children's future.
