Announcements of the Association

Education, enlarging as it does our horizon and perspective, is a means of multiplying our ideals, of bringing new ones into view.
— William James
Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education.
— Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
