Romero on Education

Let us not develop an education that creates in the mind of the student a hope of becoming rich and having the power to dominate. That does not correspond to the time we live in.
Let us form in the heart of the child and the young person the lofty ideal of loving, of preparing oneself to serve and to give oneself to others.
Anything else would be an education for selfishness, and we want to escape the selfishness that is precisely the cause of the great malaise of our societies.

Archbishop Oscar Romero
