Quote

In many schools the problem is not that the students seem not to be interested in anything, or in only one thing, or that we can’t find out what they’re interested in. They are interested in many things, and once they trust us, and believe that we respect their interests, they will tell us, or show us what they are. The problem is that because of pressure from anxious or angry adults in the community, or our own worries about what is important, we are afraid to let the students think, talk, read, and write about what we know very well they are interested in.
