“I believe that the era of the isolated classroom, like that of the solitary teacher, must end. We can’t do the job of teaching all by ourselves if we hope to engage children in the magnificence of their potential for learning. The loneliness of the solitary educator and the isolated parent, the school cut off from a vital connection to its neighborhood, the home and classroom that feel like totally other worlds to the child–these things must change if we are to raise a generation of passionate learners.”

The Passionate Learner by Robert L. Fried, p.7
