"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

"The clash of cultures in the classroom is essentially a class war, a socio-
economic and racial warfare being waged on the battleground of our schools,
with middle-class aspiring teachers provided with a powerful arsenal of half-
truths, prejudices, and rationalizations, arrayed against hopelessly outclassed
working-class youngsters. This is an uneven balance, particularly since, like
most battles, it comes under the guise of righteousness." (Clark, 1965, p. 119)
