Quote: "Patting Some Kids On The Head"

Quotes2 If we don’t have a chance to fail, no one will know that we need help. We won’t be able to improve. Then we will be back where we were before, patting some kids on the head... and passing them on to the next grade until they are fit for nothing better than the unemployment line. - Jay Mathews
