Maybe the answer is not in ‘biology’, or at least not completely?

There are teachers out there, including myself, as well as schools and school systems, think Finland, who do not teach with such a priority on compliance, authority, and “standardized” teaching.

I have learned a lot from philosophy and the social sciences. Speaking of which, there are many different schools of thought within philosophy and social science. Some are better than others when it comes to treating and teaching children, and students of all ages, and people in general. Alfie Kohn is a great example of this in education. Dan Pink’s book “Drive” is another good example of how social science can be very useful — it’s just that the mainstream has not caught up yet to what some have already discovered in the field.
