Quote of Barbara Harrell Carson

“Students learn what they care about . . .,”Stanford Ericksen has said,
 but Goethe knew something else: “In all things we learn only from those we love.”
Add to that Emerson’s declaration: “the secret of education lies in respecting the pupil.”                
and we have a formula something like this:
“Students learn what they care about, from people they care about and who, they know, care about them . . .”
– by Barbara Harrell Carson, 1996, Thiry Years of Stories
