Life Under the Apple Tree

Thinking Out Loud

Learning Cannot Be Stopped

A child does not have to be motivated to learn; in fact, learning cannot be stopped. A child will focus on the world around him and long to understand it. He will want to know why things are the way they are. He won’t have to be told to be curious; he will just be curious. He has no desire to be ignorant; rather he wants to know everything.

~Valerie Fitzenreiter, in The Unprocessed Child: Living Without School
