Our Education System.Deep down, we all believe in mass production - consistent quality and large number. And this is quite evident in our education system as well. We expect our students to follow the exact path which others followed.
We might agree superficially that every individual is unique and therefore should be handled distinctively. But do we have the capability to see the uniqueness of every individual? We were conditioned & now we want to pass on that same legacy to our next generation.
We enjoy quoting successful personalities (they had the courage to think & act differently); but when it comes to our own child, we already have a chalked out career plan for him. We are afraid of exclusive products. What if something goes wrong, what if the child fails, what if he doesn't succeed?
If the child is allowed and helped to develop his individuality without any hindrance from others, we will have a beautiful brain. We will have a tremendous variety of geniuses.
