'Educators' forum to be held May 21

Confucius said: 'I do not open up the truth to one who is not eager to obtain knowledge, nor help out anyone who is not anxious to explain himself'.

Socrates said: 'Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire'.

Rousseau said: 'Plants are shaped by cultivation, people by education'.

Throughout the ages, many philosophers have deeply pondered the meaning and value of education.
