Learn by doing

This article is written by a teacher talking about the things children learn at school.
She has for me hit the nail on the head when she says we are teaching our young people to hate school and therefore learning.
We need our children to have an eclectic mix of experiences and to explore the world to then be able to decide what really interests them enough to learn more as they get older.
Children deserve their childhood not just a certificate for passing a test.
Read and comment.
