Quote of the Day : from MacDonell's Essential Documents for School Libraries

"Schools that have a culture of learning are places where being a student is a source of satisfaction and joy, because real learning is a pleasure. Good schools become great schools when the focus of education is not on right or wrong answers on tests, but the ability to think and judge for oneself. Students and teachers alike can discover the power of a free and engaged intellect. This in turn will transform their idea of education from something that happens only in schools to something that is a natural and necessary part of living in the real world" (MacDonnell 76).
