Only then shall the students be empowered educationally and morally with ethics.”

“The Student’s Prayer”
Show me so that I can stand
On your shoulders,
Reveal yourself so that I can be
Something different
Don’t impose on me what you know,
I want to explore the unknown
And be the source of my own discoveries.
Let the known, be my liberation, not my slavery.
….. by son of Chilean biologist, Maturana.
