What is a Good Education?

There will always be arguments about what is taught in schools. Socrates was fed poison for teaching the “wrong things”. William of Ockam and Galileo are two great examples that philosophy and science have always been controversial topics (to understate the issue) when education runs counter to the status quo.

The line on what is good education seems to keep moving.

With common core and year-round schools coming into vogue these days, schools are a very different place than when I was a kid. And education 50 years from now will be even more different. I imagine 3-D display classrooms, with virtual summer bulletin boards and a ton of technology streamlining learning. (Even now, you check out the best educational apps that kids can use to better engage in learning .)

Yes, the future of education may seem strange to us today, but the changes will be made for the better of the student, or the changes will not last long.

When I think of, “what is good education” one quote comes to my mind. A quote by John Fitzgerald Kennedy that I think encapsulates what a good education is really all about:

Without further ado, let’s get to the education quotes. Starting first with the most important aspect of education: kids. As the late Whitney Houston sang “ I believe that children are our are future.  Teach them well and let them lead the way ”

Educational Quotes to Motivate Your Students

Creating self-motivation is a challenge . It's even harder to generate motivation in a classroom setting.

While a few kids are motivated to do well from their own thirst for knowledge. Most are not.

Particularly younger kids may go into school kicking and screaming the whole way. While the best motivation will always be intrinsic motivation something has to be done to give kids that initial motivation until they grow up enough to motivate themselves.

Parents and teachers are always working up new tricks to give these students a bit of motivation. Of course, in many ways the best motivation for the young kids remains the old “carrot and stick” method. Let the child self reward when they do good jobs and have a set of punishments when they do not live up to standards.

Not much has changed when it comes to motivation over the years, except you might be taking away time playing video games instead of taking away time from playing ball with their friends.

Regardless, some of the educational quotes below will hopefully help students gain a little bit of motivation, or at least give parents and educators some ideas on applying some extrinsic motivation.

Quotes About Education and Success

The section of quotes below I have titled “quotes about education and success”. These quotes deal a lot with what it takes to achieve success in learning and education.

Of course, “success” is sort of a nebulous term. What one person views as success, another might view as a failure. For some, success is raising their child to be a decent person, for another success might be making a lot of money . Or gaining fame. Or power. Or finding happiness . Ultimately success can be best defined by understanding your core values and what you value in life.

I have talked about success a lot here on this blog. It's a popular concept for people trying to change their habits because almost everybody wants to succeed in some aspect of their lives. They are trying to learn from the mistakes of others and thereby increase their own chances of success.

I have also written a lot of quote posts, similar to this one, relating to success in its many forms and giving inspiration to those seeking to succeed. If you want to check out these success quote posts, the following is a shortlist.

Education Quotes About Experience and Mistakes

I find this simple quote to be quite profound, and often ask myself this question when I think about my understanding of a concept. Could I explain it in ten words or less? Could I explain it to someone with no background in the subject? If the answer is no, I need to do more research.

Hopefully the quotes we showcased on this page inspired you a little to embrace the many benefits of learning and education. Taking the clay of our children and helping the parents too slowly mold children into thinking adults. It is a tough job, and often thankless. But by making this post I want to say to all teachers. Mine from the past, my child’s in the future and of course all other teachers out there.

Learning starts with failure; the first failure is the beginning of education. ~John Hersey
This world is your best teacher. There is a lesson in everything. There is a lesson in each experience. Learn it and become wise.
Every failure is a stepping stone to success. Every difficulty or disappointment is a trial of your faith. Every unpleasant incident or temptation is a test of your inner strength. Therefore nil desperandum. March forward hero! ~Swami Sivananda
The home is the first and most effective place to learn the lessons of life: truth, honor, virtue, self-control, the value of education, honest work, and the purpose and privilege of life. Nothing can take the place of home in rearing and teaching children, and no other success can compensate for failure in the home. ~David O. McKay
You can’t let your failures define you. You have to let your failures teach you. ~Barack Obama

To be successful in life what you need is education, not literacy and degrees. ~Munshi Premchand

Those collections are meaningful and easy to remember. “Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do.” is my favourite one and hope I can do what I want to do soon. Thank you for sharing.

Every quote you shared is very motivating and will help who is really looking for some motivation. For some of motivational blog and stories you can visit my website.

Wow!! It was a beautiful collection of quotes. Some not heard of (best part of your collection that it’s not filled with the common ones) but so deep and meaningful. Great piece of work! Glad came across this. Was looking for some quote for our magazine and looks like I’ve reached the destination.

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” First time hearing this quote and I think it’s brilliant! Thanks for this article, Quincy!

Excellent list, thank you for this.

I would like to add a quote from the late hero, Kobe Bryant.

“Everything negative – pressure, challenges – is all an opportunity for me to rise.”

This would be great to share in your article.
