“Justice is what love looks like in public.” – Cornel West
“An environment-based education movement–at all levels of education–will help students realize that school isn’t supposed to be a polite form of incarceration, but a portal to the wider world.” – Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder
“Play is the highest expression of human development in childhood, for it alone is the free expression of what is in a child’s soul.” — Frederick Froebel
