The Fourth of July is approaching and once again we're getting ready to celebrate our country's birthday. We searched our archives and found these Milken Educator quotes about the importance of teachers to America's future.
Amanda Mayeaux (LA '03): "This country was founded on the principle of the American dream. Effective teachers teach a work ethic and what it means to be an American and a member of the world."
Tu Moua-Carroz (CA '10): "Being part of the Milken Educator family gives me an even greater sense of responsibility to ensure that the future of America is going to be competitive."
Mark Julien (MI '13): "I'm here—the product of a working-class family, first generation in college—because of great teachers. If the American dream is alive, it is in schools."
