John C. Holt
“There is no reason why a child, living in every other way as a dependent of his parents, could not and should not have (like everyone else) the right to decide what he wants to learn and when and how much of it he wants to learn in school, and in what school, and how much time he wants to spend doing it.”
John Holt, Escape from Childhood: The Needs and Rights of Children

John C. Holt
“he said: (1) accept yourself, (2) forget yourself, (3) find something to do and to care about that is more important to you than you are.”
John Holt, Escape from Childhood: The Needs and Rights of Children

Neil Postman
“I am particularly fond of John Lindsay’s suggestion that political commercials be banned from television as we now ban cigarette and liquor commercials.”
Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business

John C. Holt
“We don't have to make human beings smart. They are born smart. All we have to do is stop doing the things that made them stupid.”
John Holt, How Children Fail

John C. Holt
“Incompetence has one other advantage. Not only does it reduce what others expect and demand of you, it reduces what you expect or even hope for yourself. When you set out to fail, one thing is certain-you can't be disappointed. As the old saying goes, you can't fall out of bed when you sleep on the door.”
John Holt, How Children Fail
