-Students learn best when their basic needs are met for love, food,
shelter, exercise and rest.
-School should provide a safe and caring learning environment.
-Curriculum should be developmentally appropriate and allow choices
for varied interests.
-Goal-setting, planning and problem-solving skills are necessary for
all students.
