education affects our image of ourselves and others

Education is vital to the success of our working lives, to our children’s futures and to long-term national development. More than this, it stamps us with a deep impression of ourselves, and of everybody else, that’s hard to remove. Success or failure in education can affect our image of ourselves for life.” (p.17?)

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
