The Right To Learn. Quote from W.E.B. DuBois
Find this quote from W.E.B. Du Bois on the web site: "Of all the civil rights for which the world has struggled and fought for 5,000 years, the right to learn is undoubtedly the most fundamental.... The freedom to learn... has been bought by bitter sacrifice. And whatever we may think of the curtailment of other civil rights, we should fight to the last ditch to keep open the right to learn, the right to have examined in our schools not only what we believe, but what we do not believe; not only what our leaders say, but what the leaders of other groups and nations, and the leaders of other centuries have said. We must insist upon this to give our children the fairness of a start which will equip them with such an array of facts and such an attitude toward truth that they can have a real chance to judge what the world is and what its greater minds have thought it might be." --W.E.B. Du Bois, "The Freedom to Learn"

This is also the opening paragraph in an article describing "The Right to Learn: A Blueprint for Creating Schools That Work", By LINDA DARLING-HAMMOND.
