There is too much focus on academic outcomes and a very narrow view of success with a one-size-fits-all approach that negates individuality. There is too much testing and too much competition, and too much comparison between kids. The whole system is geared towards achieving better outcomes rather than getting kids to love learning, and consequently there is a hierarchy of pressure, with kids right at the bottom.
