  I can help you with the second one -- front page of the NYTimes yesterday:
  don't think this is the one your superintendent was looking for but it's a good 
thought along the same lines 
We shall one day learn to supersede politics by education. What we call our 
root-and-branch reforms of slavery, war, gambling, intemperance, is only medicating 
the symptoms. We must begin higher up, namely, in Education. ATTRIBUTION: Ralph 
Waldo Emerson (18031882), U.S. essayist, poet, philosopher. "Culture," The Conduct 
of Life (1860).
  Here are three that might fit the request: 
  -Only the educated are free. Epictetus (55 AD - 135 AD), Discourses 
  -The strength of the United States is not the gold at Fort Knox or the weapons of 
mass destruction that we have, but the sum total of the education and the character 
of our people. Claiborne Pell (1918 
  -Next in importance to freedom and justice is popular education, without which 
neither freedom nor justice can be permanently maintained. James A. Garfield (1831 
- 1881), July 12, 1880 
  Is this the one?

Our society will not be great until every young mind is set free to scan the 
farthest reaches of thought and imagination. - President Johnson
