Education and Ignorance

If you think education is expensive, try ignorance. 
  --Derek Bok, lawyer and educator (b.1930)

(71:3.1) The political or administrative form of a government is of little consequence provided it affords the essentials of civil progress—liberty, security, education, and social co-ordination. It is not what a state is but what it does that determines the course of social evolution. And after all, no state can transcend the moral values of its citizenry as exemplified in their chosen leaders. Ignorance and selfishness will insure the downfall of even the highest type of government.

Derek Curtis Bok is an American lawyer and educator, and former president of Harvard University.
