Access, Time, and Road Maps

August 28, 2006 @ 8:25 am | Filed under: Joy of Learning Quote of the Day

"What children need is not new and better curricula but access to more
and more of the real world; plenty of time and space to think over their
experiences, and to use fantasy and play to make meaning out of them; and
advice, road maps, guidebooks, to make it easier for them to get where
they want to go (not where we think they ought to go), and to find out
what they want to find out."

—John Holt, Teach Your Own
