Why Teaching is NOT like making motor cars.... CNN

(CNN) -- Sir Ken Robinson says our education system works like a factory. It's based on models of mass production and conformity that actually prevent kids from finding their passions and succeeding, he said.

"The problem is that educating young people is not like making motorcars -- at all," the author and educator said in a recent interview. "And one key difference is that motorcars have no interest in how they're made, and young people do."

I believe that in order for a child to learn, they have to relate or click with what they are being taught. I also believe that children should be allowed to express themselves and not have things forced upon them.
