• Grads from top schools are funneled into high-income 80-hour-per-week jobs, and 15–30 years of soul-crushing work has been accepted as the default path.-The 4 Hour Workweek by Ferris.

  • Sadly, money is not taught in schools. Schools focus on scholastic and professional skills, but not on financial skills. This explains how smart bankers, doctors, and accountants who earned excellent grades may struggle financially all of their lives. Our staggering national debt is due in large part to highly educated politicians and government officials making financial decisions with little or no training in the subject of money.-Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Kyosaki.

  • Most people went to school and never learned how money works, so they spend their lives working for money.-Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Kyosaki.

  • Schools were designed to produce good employees, instead of employers.-Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Kyosaki.

  • It is the knowledge of the legal corporate structure that really gives the rich a vast advantage over the poor and the middle class.-Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Kyosaki.

  • “Schools suppress creativity,” Dacey and Lennon assert bluntly, a conclusion that brings a teacher up short. They contend that after children have attended school for a while, “most become more cautious and less innovative.” Teachers simply lack the time or skill or patience or desire, or the freedom within the formal environment of the classroom, to encourage students to experiment or create.-Transforming Leadership by Burns.
