Parents are the first and most important teachers.
Your teaching must not stop when schooling starts.
The early years build the foundation for all later learning. Make it sturdy.
American schools are underperforming. Trust but verify.
Learning requires discipline; discipline requires values.
Follow your common sense.
Content matters: what children study determines how well they learn.
Television is an enemy of good education.
Education reform is possible. You can change the system.
Aim high, expect much, and children will prosper.
