Bay Area



"When we speak of education we are proclaiming a revolution, one in which everything we know today will be transformed. I think of this revolution as the final revolution; not a revolution of violence, but one from which violence is wholly excluded. What has to be defended is the construction of human normality... This then is education, understood as a help to life; an education from birth which feeds a peaceful revolution and unites all in a common aim... This is the bright new hope for mankind."
