Theodore Roszak – Education

Posted in Uncategorized by Randall Szott on 03/29/2012

We are all born mavericks, gifted with strange vocations…This is what all of us bring into life and to school: a wholly unexplored radically unpredictable identity. To educate is to unfold that identity – to unfold it with the utmost delicacy…First of all, we must want children to teach us who they are . We should think of our meeting with them as a glad encounter with the unexpected…It is the task of the educator to champion…against all the forces of the world that see in our children only so much raw material for more of the same, the established, the ‘successful.’ – Theodore Roszak
