Holt on learning

"Children learn from anything and everything they see. They learn wherever they are, not just in special learning places...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 and helping them explore the things they are most interested in."
