“ Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books. ”

“ Learn—not by being taught, that’s how we learned the lies and limitations. You learn now by being open, by watching everything around you, by feeling your feelings, by participating fully in life. ”

“ We can best help children learn, not by deciding what we think they should learn and thinking of ingenious ways to teach it to them, but by making the world — as far as we can — accessible to them, paying serious attention to what they do, answering their questions — if they have any — and helping them explore the things they are most interested in. ”

“ I sincerely hope that some day our school systems teach human beings how to interact with each other and the world around them in a constructive, compassionate way. Most of what I see right now consists of children being ridiculed, demeaned, and made to feel bad about themselves, being forced to spend agonizingly long hours inside dismal buildings where the only light is florescent, with little, if any, recess time, and generally being trained to regurgitate ‘correct’ answers for the benefit of standardized tests. There is almost no acknowledgement of the very real truth that different people learn in different ways, or of the value of play and exploration as an integral part of an individual’s learning experience. We see pundits on the news word-vomiting nonsense about our school systems when something goes publicly amiss, but my personal opinion is that the problem lies in the fact that most people are putting their kids in institutions that too closely resemble prisons. Let your kids play outside naked in poison ivy. Let them be stung by bees, ants, nettles, or whatever (and maybe have an epi pen handy just in case). Let them eat all sorts of weird dirt that may or may not be carrying harmful bacteria. Let them hurt themselves while playing and learn from that experience. Your child does not have a ‘sensitivity’ to sausage. Sausage is not a naturally occurring food. Along the same lines, your child cannot be allergic to soy products while you simultaneously demand the inclusion of tofu in their diet. It’s difficult for me to talk (write) about this without getting carried away on some ADD tangent, but the point I want to make is that as someone who has worked in education, I think that there are a lot of things that need to be changed if we want kids to grow up well-adjusted and happy. Not being a parent myself, my argument may be irrelevant, but I feel very strongly that kids need to get outside and dick around instead of remembering various birth dates of dead white dudes. ”

“ Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each. ”
