I believe each child - each person for that matter - has their own special gifts, talents and interests. The "mold"... the establishment... doesn't always allow students to explore the things that are of interest to them. Who decided that we should all graduate knowing the exact same things, like little robots?
Albert Einstein said, "Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it's stupid." Is that what we're doing to our children? To our society? Are we making people feel stupid because they don't fit into the mold? Maybe those "stupid fish" are the smartest of us all. I look forward to a time when all people will be celebrated for who they are, for their individual genius.
