Children's book quote“I was supposed to be a welfare statistic… It was because of a teacher that I sit at this table. I remember her telling us one cold, miserable day that she could not make our clothing better; she could not provide us with food; she could not change the terrible segregated conditions under which we lived. She could introduce us to the world of reading, the world of books and that is what she did.”

Final quote from evidence submitted to The National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future – 1999
