Are you smarter than a Nobel Laureate?

Three quotes about education from people far smarter than I (they were all Nobel Laureates.) Do you agree or disagree?

“Teaching is not entertainment, but it is unlikely to be successful unless it is entertaining.” – Herbert Simon

“The message I would give to young people is: Don’t be the best in your class. If you’re the best in your class, you’re in the wrong class.” – James Watson

“Anytime you try to teach the subject without teachers who love the subject, it is doomed to failure and is a foolish thing to do.” Richard Feynman

    – Nelson Mandela
