W. Edwards Deming Quotes

Quotes in education

Our schools must preserve and nurture the yearning for learning that everyone is born with.


Money and time spent for training will be ineffective unless inhibitors to good work are removed.


I read them. Not to grade them. No, I read them to see how I am doing. Where am I failing? What don’t they understand? Why do they give wrong answers? Why do they have some point of view that I don’t think is right? Where am I failing? Where do I need to build up.


The aim of education should be to preserve and nurture the yearning for learning that a child is born with. Grades and gold stars destroy this yearning for learning.
