  • Our mind does not gain true freedom by acquiring
    materials for knowledge and possessing other
    peoples ideas but by forming its own standards
    of judgment and producing its own thoughts.
  • -Rabindranath Tagore, in a syllabus for a class
    in his school, c. 1915

  • Curricular content has shifted away from
    material that focuses on enlivening imagination
    and training the critical faculties toward
    material that is directly relevant to test
    preparation. Along with the shift in content has
    come an even more baneful shift in pedagogy away
    from teaching that seeks to promote questioning
    and individual responsibility toward
    force-feeding for good exam results.
  • -Nussbaum, M. Not for Profit Why democracy
    needs the humanities. 2010.
