1 “The hardest part about gaining any new idea is sweeping out the false idea occupying that niche. As long as that niche is occupied, evidence and proof and logical demonstration get nowhere. But once the niche is emptied of the wrong idea that has been filling it, once you can honestly say, ‘I don’t know,’ then it becomes possible to get at the truth.” —Robert A. Heinlein “What children learn does not follow as an automatic result from what is taught, rather, it is in large part due to the children’s own doing, as a consequence of their activities and our resources.” —Loris Malaguzzi to understand that … any learning endeavor depends primarily on them. Only when we make a payment through effort do we receive something real and permanent. What we receive, then, is com­mensurate with our effort, and everything we really possess we have earned. If we do not help our children move toward internal self-determination, we move them toward external dependency.
