    • Learning always has been and always will be a personalised experience
    • It is the organisation of education that has been impersonal

    The art and craft of the teacher has been to balance the needs of the learner and the system

    • "Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each."
