Connecting the dots ...

 Seth Godin, writer of many books, one of which is great for entrepreneurs, "The Purple Cow"  wrote a very interesting must read on "Stop Stealing Dreams".  While the article is written based on American school system, it defines how the changing role of teachers are killing the aspirations of our future generation.  Unfortunately, this is not only an American issue.  Teachers for the sake of a different outcome - statistics rather than the journey / process has destroyed interest in learning and fostering dreams for what could be. Here's an extract from his article:

When we teach a child to make good decisions, we benefit from a lifetime of good decisions.
When we teach a child to love to learn, the amount of learning will become limitless.
When we teach a child to deal with a changing world, she will never become obsolete.
When we are brave enough to teach a child to question authority, even ours, we insulate ourselves from those who would use their authority to work against each of us.
And when we give students the desire to make things, even choices, we create a world filled with makers.
