The Quotable Teacher, installment 4

Apropos of Karla's remarks about students asking us questions:

"The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer." (Alice Wellington Rollins)
