“Imagine what might happen to Leonardo da Vinci  today if he were placed in the average American public school, or (perish the thought) a research university faculty. This illegitimate son of a poor woman, a left-handed writer who loved to draw and challenge conventional thought, would be labeled an at-risk special education candidate or be told he had too many interests, a lack of focus, and off-task predilections.”

– J. Darby, J Catterall – The Teachers College Record, 1994
