IV i Educational Institutions as Educators

2. What should the primary concern of educators be? Knowledge? Rules?

Despite all the knowledge one may have acquired, if one has no concern for the welfare of the world, all that knowledge is worthless. Without good qualities, all knowledge is useless.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Jul 1994
 
Colleges should not compete with each other in the number of students on the rolls. Quality and not quantity should be the goal. A small number ensures greater individual attention, more intense discipline, better teaching and deeper learning.
Sathya Sai Baba, 2 Mar 1970
 
Without refinement in daily actions, vast scholarship will not confer renown.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Jul 1994
 
Conformity to rules, without morality, will not enhance one's worth. Will anyone respect you in the world if you display the arrogance of power, overstepping the limits?
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Jul 1994
 
Going astray from Dharma, if you preach Dharma to others, will you be deemed human at all? If you have not cherished fear of sin and not entertained the Love of God in your thoughts, what have you achieved so far? Lead a truly human life by being human at least from now onwards.
Sathya Sai Baba, 19 Jul 1994
