"The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people and be willing to bear the expenses of it. There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves." -- John Adams

"No money shall be drawn from the treasury, for the benefit of any religious or theological institution." -- Indiana Constitution Article 1, Section 6.

"...no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinion in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish enlarge, or affect their civil capacities." – Thomas Jefferson

The Roar of an Educator -- John Kuhn

The inspiring video below is of John Kuhn, superintendent of Perrin-Whitt Consolidated Independent School District speaking at the Save Texas Schools rally. He is speaking to teachers in Texas, but his message is appropriate for all of us who have chosen education as a career. It's only 8 and a half minutes long...you have time for that!

Be sure to read his Alamo Letter and the interview at Anthony Cody's Living in Dialogue Blog.
