Kids: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

“Schools will probably eventually wither away. In the meantime, for safety reasons and because the adult world is still so crabby about children, we’ve got to create environments in which kids can grow up. The only environment that makes sense now is one where we treat them the way we treat adults where we let them be free, where we let them pursue happiness and give them liberty, where we let them figure out what they want to do, what their life dream is at any given age, whether they’re 4 or 8 or 16, and where we treat them as equals.”

Daniel Greenberg, “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness”
