    “Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.”
    -- Martin Luther King Jr.

      I like this quote. Practicing logical thinking and learning how to analyze problems are an important part of education, but so is encouraging ethical behavior and strength of character in students.

        I'd like to see more schools using this doctrine. I don't understand why they don't. It seems the individual character is lost.

      I would add "purpose" to this quote. Everyone has a gift to give to others and the world. Having a sense of importance in using that gift is purpose, what gets the individual up in the morning. So, intelligence, character, and a purpose are necessary to a productive and happy life.

        The purpose is essential, and it could be Dr. King meant that as well. Many times, I used that objective to get through a difficult task or project. "Why am I doing this?" "What is the reasoning behind this?"

    All of the logical thinking and education a person has will do no good without moral character.  The leaders of the mafia are very intelligent people, but have no moral character and just create havoc with their lives.

      The mafia has its system of ethics, and if you are apart of that group, you have to adhere to it.  I am not saying I agree with their policy of justice, but it's stable and doesn't change.
      With that, schools need to understand the meaning of the character — kids who have parents or guardians that teach them that are lucky.

    Education is not gained just in school.  Trying to handle life the best you can also gives an education.  Much can be learned from life experiences.  Use mistakes as an education tool.  Also the wisdom that can be learned from elders and other friends.  The Bible says the hoary head (gray hairs) is a thing of honor, because of the lifes education the elder person has hopefully had, if he was smart enough.

    Education can be anywhere you want it to be.
