"Every single major push in education has made it worse and right now it's really bad because everything we've done is de-humanizing education. It's destroying the possibility of the teacher and the student having a warm, friendly, intellectual relationship."
"This is at the heart of all good education, where the teacher asks students to think and engages them in encouraging dialogues, constantly checking for understanding and growth."
"I think it is totally wrong and terribly harmful if education is defined as acquiring knowledge."
"Education is the process in which we discover that learning adds quality to our lives. Learning must be experienced."
