"A study by the National Bureau of Economic Research, reported on, shows that colleges enrolling students with higher SAT scores don't necessarily produce graduates who make higher incomes.  'Evidently, students'
             ambition, and
             desire to learn
have a much stronger effect on their subsequent success' than those SAT scores, says the bureau."          --Readers' Digest

"Discipline imposed from the outside eventually defeats when it is not matched by a desire from within." --Dawson Trotman

As parents, responsible for overseeing the education of our children, we must first ask ourselves if "the education [they are] receiving is on par with their potential". (DeMille)  They deserve the most beneficial education, not the most convenient, practical or "realistic".
