Teaching in a Settlement requires distinct methods, for it is true
of people who have been allowed to remain undeveloped and
whose facilities are inert and sterile, that they cannot take their
learning heavily. It has to be diffused in a social atmosphere,
information must be held in solution, in a medium of fellowship
and good will.... It is needless to say that a Settlement is a protest
against a restricted view of education.

(Founder of Hull House, which provided aid to poor working-class
families in Chicago. First woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize- 1931)
