03/13/2013: Adam Smith on Education

The parts of education which are commonly taught in universities, it may, perhaps, be said are not very well taught. But had it not been for those institutions they would not have been commonly taught at all, and both the individual and the publick would have suffered a good deal from the want of those important parts of education.

-Adam Smith
An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, Book V(i)f
