"The process of education should equip the individual with the ability to analyze, evaluate, and classify all of the information that comes to him or her. The purpose of education is to teach individuals to THINK and to develop good judgment. The acquisition of these skills relies on a thorough curriculum that interrelates all subject matter in a sequential manner and is continued from grade to grade."

- Mae Carden
