The Student’s Prayer

I had earlier posted a TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson - Schools kill creativity!! Now here is an article in The Hindu on the same topic - Need for creativity in classroom.

Former Indian President Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam has quoted a young Chilean student's poem in the article. The boy, Umberto Maturana, became unhappy at school because he felt his teachers were making it impossible for him to learn. They wanted to teach him what they knew, rather than drawing out what he needed to learn. This beautiful poem reflects the young mind's thoughts. A must read for all parents.
