Quote

…if teachers have been saying for years that these children can’t learn and don’t want to learn, and then someone comes along and shows that they both can and want to, it threatens the other teachers’ alibi. It is easier and safer to go on teaching the children in ways that you know won’t work, because they never have worked, and then to go on blaming the children.
