goal is to give the student a chance to explore the environment at his
or her own pace and to encourage the child to become independent, improving
self-confidence and self-esteem, while developing their social, intellectual,
and academic skills.
observation has established that education is not what the teacher gives;
education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual,
and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment.
The task of the teacher becomes that of preparing a series of motives of
cultural activity, spread over a specially prepared environment, and then
refraining from obtrusive interference. Human teachers can only help
the great work that is being done, as servants help the master. Doing
so, they will be witnesses to the unfolding of the human soul and to the
rising of a New Man who will not be a victim of events, but will have the
clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society."
