Ralph Waldo Emerson

The secret of education is respecting the pupil.


Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind.

Education Quote, Plato

John Holt

To parents I say, above all else, don’t let your home become some terrible miniature copy of the school. No lesson plans! No quizzes! No tests! No report cards! Even leaving your kids alone would be better; at least they could figure out some things on their own. Live together, as well as you can; enjoy life together, as much as you can.

George Lucas - Education Quote and film

Traditional education can be extremely isolating -- the curriculum is often abstract and not relevant to real life, teachers and students don't connect with resources and experts outside of the classroom, and schools operate as if they were separate from their communities . . . . students connecting with passionate experts, and broader forms of assessment can dramatically improve student learning . . . . And well-prepared educators are critical.

I didn't really discover any interest in film until I was a junior in college.
