What if our schools actually educated children, instead of programming them?

What if we nurtured creativity instead of compliance?

What if we believed children have an intrinsic motivation to learn that functions perfectly well if not tampered with?

What if every child heard “yes” more frequently than “no”?

What if every child grew up with respect and consideration?

What if every child received an education that respects and nurtures his unique talents and passions?

What if children were freed from the system’s insane focus and reliance on standardized tests?

What if literature and up-to-date information resources replaced textbooks?

What if children didn’t equate institutional drudgery and boredom with learning?

What if parents and the community had a larger say in classroom activity than the government?
