Education as an active/living process

"Each one of us who works in education has learned in the field that many things can be gathered from the cultural patrimony, many from theories and experiences, many from literature, the arts, economics, and science and technology. But many things are also born intuition, taste, ethics and value choices, of reason and opportunities that in part we control and in part are suggested by our own craft in living.

Nevertheless within this constellation of things, balancing between stable and unstable theories and practices, necessary, possible and even accidental; and between oscillations, disequilibria and even adversities of social policies, there remains a space and freedom to use our own intelligence, passion and creativity. "

Loris Malaguzzi, 1995
