Each child has the right to the best educational opportunity for achieving his or her highest potential. The basic skills taught in the early school years are essential to success. Quality physical, emotional and educational environments must be maintained in order for students to reach their maximum potential. The natural curiosity of the young should be kept alive throughout the educational process. Every effort should be made to select and retrain personnel of the highest quality.
