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

getting kids to love learning, and consequently there is a hierarchy of
pressure, with kids right at the bottom.
