“Being with a child is an opportunity for us to know the simple ways of life, to be able to be joyful without reason, to be able to love without distinction, to be able to laugh and romp without any purpose. Above all, it is an opportunity for us to see the child intensely inquisitive about life, to be able to focus our attention without conscious discrimination, and to look upon every piece of life with interest, love and absolute attention.
Our social structures have created extremely complicated survival processes. A child’s ability to look at life with utter freshness and involvement is slowly disappearing. It is the duty and responsibility of our educational systems to bring that back. Education can never be a profession – it must be a passion. In the process of education, it is very important to see that the child does not lose his joyfulness, his spontaneity, or his ability to be truthful without any fear of consequence.
At the Home School, we are striving to create the necessary platform where education is not about loading the child’s mind with information, but about making the child’s mind capable of razor sharp perception, capable of knowing life in its full depth and dimension. Education is about expanding the horizons of human experience and becoming inclusive. Only in a state of inclusiveness can the empowerment of education become a bounty all of us may cherish.”
