Educational Quotes from Our Founding Fathers

During the Fourth of July celebrations in the midst of the parades, fireworks, and BBQ’s we need to remember those great people that came before us that laid the groundwork for this great nation. 

The Founding Fathers of the United States included: Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, James Madison, John Adams, John Jay, and Thomas Jefferson.  These men were political leaders and statesmen that lived over two hundred years ago and yet they already understood key values that would make our country so great.  One of those values was the importance of education for we the people.
