Responsibility for learning belongs to the student, regardless of age.
I know that many students take personal responsibility for their education and succeed as a result. I want them to know they are not alone - that Nevada's system can and will support them.
Students and their families carry more responsibility for student success in the East.
The primary goal of real education is not to deliver facts but to guide students to the truths that will allow them to take responsibility for their lives.
You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
I can find in my undergraduate classes, bright students who do not know that the stars rise and set at night, or even that the Sun is a star.
