“The most important thing in a game is not to win but to take part. Just as the most important thing in life is not to triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
- Baron de Coubertin Founder of the Modern Olympics
Just as in the Olympics, the most important thing in school is the process of learning- learning the skills to be a productive citizen and a life-long learner. AHED’s goal is to provide additional support for its educators so that they in turn can give our student’s the knowledge to continue learning throughout their lives.
