The Goal of Education

"The goal of education is not to produce higher scores, but to educate children to become responsible people with well developed minds and good character."

Quote from Dianne Ravitch article entitled “In Need of a Renaissance: Real Reform Will Renew, Not Abandon, Our Neighborhood Schools” in the American Educator, Summer 2010 issue which is excerpted from the book The Death and Life of the Great American School System: How Testing and Choice Are Undermining Education
