"WE HAVE TO GO FROM WHAT IS ESSENTIALLY AN INDUSTRIAL MODEL OF EDUCATION, A MANUFACTURING MODEL, WHICH IS BASED ON LINEARITY AND CONFORMITY AND BATCHING PEOPLE. WE HAVE TO MOVE TO A MODEL THAT IS BASED MORE ON PRINCIPLES OF AGRICULTURE. WE HAVE TO RECOGNIZE THAT HUMAN FLOURISHING IS NOT A MECHANICAL PROCESS; IT'S AN ORGANIC PROCESS. AND YOU CANNOT PREDICT THE OUTCOME OF HUMAN DEVELOPMENT. ALL YOU CAN DO, LIKE A FARMER, IS CREATE THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THEY BEGIN TO FLOURISH."
