From the Patriot Post we have this quote from Ben Franklin about the importance of education...

... an education that includes solid moral foundations for children...

... with an emphasis on serving rather than entitlement.

Founder's Quote Daily
"The good Education of Youth has been esteemed by wise Men in all Ages, as the surest Foundation of the Happiness both of private Families and of Common-wealths. Almost all Governments have therefore made it a principal Object of their Attention, to establish and endow with proper Revenues, such Seminaries of Learning, as might supply the succeeding Age with Men qualified to serve the Publick with Honour to themselves, and to their Country."

—Benjamin Franklin, Proposals Relating to the Education of Youth in Pennsylvania, 1749

Consider and ponder.
