John Dewey Quote

Reading Nancie Atwell’s wonderful “In the Middle” again; she quotes John Dewey on p.85:

“From the standpoint of the child, the great waste in school comes from his inability to utilize the experiences he gets outside of school in any complete and free way; while, on the other hand, he is unable to apply to daily life what he is learning at school.”
