"Freedom to live and to think about life for its own sake is important and even essential to a child. Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned." -John Holt.

Letter to D, by hand 19 January 2011
I am happy that En has begun a correspondence with D. It all started after En met D at Jusco supermarket. En was so happy that she wrote a note and prepared some cut-outs for D. In the following meeting, D returned her with a beautiful drawing which came with a note.
This morning, En closed the study's door and replied the note. She is waiting for the next meeting to pass the envelope to D.
