Foradian Technologies ­ Launch
Education is the silver bullet.
Education is everything.
Schools should be palaces.
Competition for the best teachers should be fierce;
they should be making six figure salaries.
Schools should be incredibly expensive for government
and absolutely free of charge to its citizens, just like national defense.

- Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, TV Series)
