The essence of our effort to see that every child has a chance must be to assure each an equal opportunity, not to become equal, but to become, different- to realize whatever unique potential of body, mind and spirit he or she possesses. - John Fischer

As a general rule the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information. - Benjamin Disraeli
