Quote of The Day

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

W. B. Yeats

If a gifted student is not interested in a subject, or if they cannot see the relevance of a subject to their life, then they are not going to be nearly as receptive to learning about the subject as if they are interested and they understand the real-world application. When a student refuses to learn about a subject, that student could then be marked as a discipline case and from there numerous other things could occur, but all could have been prevented if only the child had seen the relevance in a subject.
