Quotes

“Parents and families are the first and most important teachers. If families teach a love of learning, it can make all the difference in the world to our children.” -Richard W. Riley, U.S. Secretary of Education

“Children do not need to be made to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world then anyone else could make for them”- John Holt

“When you want to teach children to think, you begin by treating them seriously when they are little, giving them responsibilities, talking to them candidly, providing privacy and solitude for them, and making them readers and thinkers of significant thoughts from the beginning. That’s if you want to teach them to think.” – Bertrand Russell

“Education has for its object the formation of character.” – Herbert Spencer

“It is hard not to feel that there must be something very wrong with much of what we do in school, if we feel the need to worry so much about what many people call ‘motivation’. A child has no stronger desire than to make sense of the world, to move freely in it, to do the things that he sees bigger people doing.” – John Holt

“I can say that after thirty years of classroom teaching, I’m utterly convinced that every single stage theory of child development is dangerously flawed; “dangerous” because all of them suggest overtly or covertly that unless the abstract sequence is followed, great harm will result.” -John Taylor Gatto
