Grace Verne Silver
“The precocious child is the normal child.”
“In the eyes of modern educators, individuality is a great sin, to be ruthlessly suppressed. The child is refused the right to reason for itself, and, if bold enough to do so, its thought processes are promptly crushed by the steam roller of the 'system.' The educators of our schools worship a holy trinity of their own, namely, average, authority, and standardized methods.”
Grace Verne Silver, U.S. labor activist
(1889 - 1972)
Queen Silver’s mother.
