Fear in School

Audio by Quote by John Holt | Narration by Louise Gomedella

Louise Gomedella, a retired North Carolina elementary school teacher, narrates a powerful quote about fear from John Holt's book, How Children Fail. "Interestingly, it appears that of all the emotions, the brain devotes the most space and energy to fear."

(Willis, 2007)
