Why is it so important? The life of a child depends so much on his social interactions at their school and relationships with their friends. Finding our place in the world, being accepted and learning to fulfill our potential talents requires that we feel safe enough to take risks. When a teacher creates an atmosphere that is mutually respectful, supportive and encouraging, children can be their authentic selves and ask the questions that puzzle them the most. This requires that learning differences be honored so that elitism doesn’t evolve and crush the participation of children who are less typical learners.
