Love and Education : Something for us all and Michael Gove to think about ?

The Brazilian educationalist Paulo Freire suggested,

‘It is impossible to teach without the courage to love, without the courage to try a thousand times before giving up …We must dare, in the full sense of the word, to speak of love without the fear of being called ridiculous, mawkish, or unscientific, if not antiscientific.’
