Every day care center, whether it knows it or not, is a school. The choice is never between custodial care and education. The choice is between unplanned and planned education, between conscious and unconscious education, between bad education and good education.

(Rena Rietveld Verduin, U.S. farm woman. As quoted in The Female Experience, ch. 45, by Gerda Lerner (1977).
Said in a 1907 debate organized by the Lansing Country Culture Club. She was reacting to the typical hard life of a farm woman.)
(Ann Plato (1820-?), U.S. teacher and author. As quoted in Black Women in Nineteenth-Century American Life, part 2, by Bert James Loewenberg and Ruth Bogin (1976).
Plato, a free African American who was a schoolmistress in Hartford, Connecticut, said this in 1841.)
What education is to the individual man, revelation is to the human race. Education is revelation coming to the individual man, and revelation is education that has come, and is still coming to the human race.
