Education


Quote: "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education."

Fact: Martin Luther King Jr. was a bright student who skipped two grades and started college at age 15. He went on to earn two bachelors degrees and a PhD. His strong education and love of reading helped him write many powerful sermons and speeches, including his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

What kids can do: Work hard in school, and find subjects you are passionate about. Find books that interest you to make reading a part of your life.
