“It is possible to design environments within which the child will be neither frustrated nor hurt, yet free to develop spontaneously and fully without trespassing on others.  I have learned to undertake reform of the environment and not to try to reform humanity.  If we design the environment properly, it will permit children and adults to develop safely and to behave logically.” – – R. Buckminster Fuller, on Education

Note the words “free to develop spontaneously.” [My bold print.] We have to make a big leap in order to get there.  Ready?
