Lord Baden-Powell on Success in Education

169. The balance sheet of the community cannot be audited as satisfactory where the cost of making good citizens, through the medium of its education and church, is exceeded by the per contra cost of punishing it bad citizenship through the medium of police and prisons.

170. The test of success in education is not what a boy knows after examination on leaving school, but what he is doing ten years later.
