Maslow on No Child Left Behind



Exactly backwards. Fit the education to the child and not the child to the education. The purpose of education is to discover aptitudes and strengths and put them to work for improving the world. Humanistic education should wrap itself around students like an able mentor, rather than smashing students into molds which are no more than cookie cutters for androids. Best example here is the savant. Find out, for example, why a test can't produce someone who can design a better and more humane slaughterhouse. (Hint: google "Temple Grandin").
