John Holt en el programa de Phil Donahue (1981)

«Home schooling gives the impression that the kids are shut up inside the house,» says John Holt, a maverick educator, author, and philosopher-king of the home-schooling movement. «But they go more places, see more things, and do more than the kids locked up inside schools.»

«Most learning is not the product of teaching,» Mr. Holt adds, immersed in a sea of papers and books in his fourth-floor Boston office. «There is this idea that if we don’t teach you something, you can’t learn it. This is not true. Most of what people learn they figure out.Occasionally they may ask a question. Humans are a curious, question-asking, answer-finding animal. The human race has been passing on information to its young for millions of years without schools.»
