This is off-topic, but perhaps interesting to some, and might add some weight to the opinions expressed in the article.

The author of this article is Daniel T. Willingham. He is a psychologist at the University of Virginia and author of some very good books on learning, schools and education.

He is a good, careful and informed thinker on the subject of learning and children.

I recommend his book "Why Don't Students Like School?" [0] for an insightful look at one of the pieces of the puzzle that is Education.
