“If we all had exactly the same kind of mind…”

“…and there was only one kind of intelligence, then we could teach everybody the same thing in the same way and assess them in the same way and that would be fair. But once we realize that people have very different kinds of minds, different kinds of strengths—some people are good in thinking spatially, some in thinking language, others are very logical, other people need to be hands on and explore actively and try things out—then education, which treats everybody the same way, is actually the most unfair education. Because it picks out one kind of mind…somebody who’s very linguistic and logical and says, if you think like that, great, if you don’t think like that, there’s no room…for you.”

–Howard Gardner,Т Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education at Harvard University
