Excellent Quote

A sobering quote of a quote.

Haim G. Ginott (1922-73), clinical psychologist, educator, and best-selling author said:

I am a survivor of a concentration camp. My eyes saw what no person should witness. Gas chambers built by learned engineers. Children poisoned by educated physicians. Infants killed by trained nurses. Women and babies shot and burned by high school and college graduates.

So I am suspicious of education. My request is: help your students become more human. Your efforts must never produce learned monsters, skilled psychopaths, or educated Eichmanns. Reading, writing, and arithmetic are important only if they serve to make our children more human.

Sadly, applicable to so many things in society at the moment. And I even hesitate to post knowing some will consider, in their wrong-think, that it means going further down the same path.
