"We must recognize that there are some teachers who like being 'leader-draggers.' They like to feel that they are at every moment in control, not only of the child's body, but also of his mind. They like to feel themselves the source of all knowledge, wisdom, and learning in the classroom. Some such teachers are moved by a love of power, of which the classroom gives them plenty; others, by a deep and sometimes desperate need to feel useful, necessary, and even indispensable to their students. Both kinds are strongly threatened by any suggestion that children can and should learn on their own." John Holt
