Maslow has a quote that i cannot find... perhaps someone can assist.

in general he spoke that a student that questions the teacher is often called a troublemaker (of course paraphrased)

Does anyone actually know of this quote?


The really bright student, the eager questioner, the probing searcher, especially if he is brighter than his teacher, is too often seen as a "wise guy," a threat to discipline, a challenger of his teacher's authority.  – Abraham Maslow, Toward a Psychology of Being, p. 74
