Thought for the day!

“People who say that a beautiful building does not improve the quality of education do not understand a critical issue. In Medellin we have to build the most beautiful buildings in places where the State’s presence has been minimal. The first step towards quality in education is the dignity of space. When the poorest child from Medellin arrives at the best classroom in the city, we send a powerful message. If we give fine libraries to the poorest neighbourhoods, these communities will feel proud of themselves”(Sergio Fajardo, Newsweek, November 2007).
