Speech to the Federation of Post Secondary Educators
February 18, 2006
"Few public policies pay for themselves, except, that is, for the work you do. Education stands almost alone. It is common to refer to education as an investment, but the fact of the matter is that education is indeed rightly understood as an investment, with dividends back to both the individual, but also to society at large. It is an investment that is truly too good to pass up."
