„After your first job, is anyone asking you what your GPA was? No, they don't care. They ask you: Are you a good leader? Do people follow you? Do you have integrity? Are you innovative? Do you solve problems? Somebody's got to do that homework and redesign the educational system so that it can actually train people to be successful in life.I think the greatest teachers are not the ones that are best trained at educational tactics. I don't know a person who's ever said, "Boy, that teacher is so good! The teacher gives such good exams. That teacher gives such good homework sets!"“
— Neil deGrasse Tyson American astrophysicist and science communicator 1958
2000s, Global Ideas from Pluto's Challenger (May 21, 2009), No one has said that about a great teacher. That's not what people remember about the great teachers they've had.
