I agree , but it is. important to define the age group that you define . Children 2 to 6 may be subscibe to these innate powerful drives with respect to learning for themselves.
Education/ schooling in itself is in an artificial setting and it is directional ,if not directed at making conformist . All education systems have created ’non-conformists . So what one makes one self out of their education is purely self -intiated and innate. Systems just needs to ensure that the emotional well being of child is taken care of and the process of education is not damaging the emotional quotient of children.And that is the resposibility of all in the community.
