“Are you telling me that you are going to focus on academic achievement and presume that the discipline will fall in place? This may offend you…but you are a complete nitwit. An educational dumbass. If you focus first on academic achievement, you will have neither academic achievement nor discipline and order in your school. But if you first establish discipline and order in your school, then you might also get academic achievement, depending on the motivation and capabilities of your students. I can assure you that order is the first law of the universe. In order to have any chance of establishing academic achievement at your school, you must first establish discipline and order” – Dr. John Trotter.
