"At stake, he [ Yale President, A Whitney Griswold ]held, lay the very ability to know ourselves: 'How may we know ourselves so that we may know our weakness as well as our strength; so that we may understand the relationship between our cultural responsibilities and the political and military objectives to which we are committed; so that we may proclaim the virtues of American life in the universal language of humanity?' "
As Founder and Executive Director of the Bill and Melinda Gradgrind Foundation, I say "Humbug to Griswold and his right brain wishy washy vision of education". 

The purpose of education is to grind students into standardized perfection, and to that end, we grind teachers and curricula into standardized perfection too.

 "Grinding" is the mission of education. 

Grind! Grind! Grind! 

Never forget it.
