Julian Bond quotes :
As skills and energy became more of a demand, people who didn't have skills just got left behind, got shuttled to the side. Education didn't keep up with their promise. Education didn't prepare them for this new world. Jobs went overseas.Julian Bond
Violence is black children going to school for 12 years and receiving 6 years' worth of education.Julian Bond
I tell young people to prepare themselves as best they can for a world that grows more challenging every day-get the best education they can, and couple that education with real-life experience in social justice work.Julian Bond
