  1. “The function of education, therefore, is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.”- Martin Luther King, Jr.

  2. And good pupils and students should always doubt every teacher’s word – they should go on seeking for truth on their own, no matter how many sources it needs to be looked through. In this case only the result is maximum. The knowledge desire is fed and further discoveries are not far away.William – http://www.carid.com/

  3. I totally agree with the quote of Martin Luther King, Intelligence plus Character that is the goal of true education. Getting educated only in academics is not enough but behavior is what determines the value of a person in society. Thanks for the share.
