Quote

In the quest to educate equally, we have simplified who students are. They are not empty fields to be planted and sowed with seeds of knowledge. They are living ecosystems unto themselves. Some savannahs, some deserts, some woodlands, some oceans. All with unique capacities, needing a unique balance of nurturance and guidance to flourish. We are equal, yes. But nature teaches us that diversity works. Imagine a world in which each child’s gifts were allowed to manifest in their own time. One in which we taught mutual respect while celebrating differences. One where we let our children awaken fully to their potential in body, mind and spirit. In this world, the highest expressions of equality could flourish.
