"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free."
"Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?"
"Reading is important, because if you can read, you can learn anything about everything and everything about anything."
“We need to do a better job of educating latino students..These are bright, hard-working, young people who, when given the opportunity and equipped with college degrees, have the potential and drive to contribute enormously to our state.”
Ricardo Sánchez founder of the Latino/a Education Achievement Project (LEAP)
"Students must have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves - and be free."
