“For me, the child is a veritable image of becoming, of possibility, poised to reach towards what is not yet,

towards a growing that cannot be predetermined or prescribed. I see her and I fill the space with others like her,

risking, straining, wanting to find out, to ask their own questions,

to experience a world that is shared.”

Maxine Greene, 1987 Commencement address, Bank Street College.
