I don’t want to speak for Vinish, but it sounds like he is saying it’s difficult for teachers to encourage students to follow their curiosity when teachers aren’t given the same opportunity to follow their own curiosity. In other words, until we enable teachers to become lifelong learners themselves, we can’t really expect teachers to nurture lifelong learning in their classrooms. They literally won’t have the skills or mindsets for it.
Ideally, schools should be a place where the adults are learning along side the students. It’s impossible to create a true learning community when that isn’t the case.
