“We honor ambition, we reward greed, we celebrate materialism, we worship acquisitiveness, we cherish success, and we commercialize the classroom – and then we bark at the young about the gentle art of the spirit.”

– Benjamin Barber, (1993, November). America skips school. Harper’s Magazine, 286, p. 42, as quoted in Teaching What We Hold Sacred by John I. Goodlad in Educational Leadership, December 2003/January 2004
