From Primary School
They visited the National Library and as a result of their curiosity,as all children should have, visited my exhibition in May , 2016.
My parents never force anything down my throat( only medicine near midnight-between sleep and wake-so I was barely conscious of what my mother was doing. But she being mother I acquiesced ) and punishment was something I rarely got at home only in school-like lines,sit outs ans severe beatings.
The home method was observing ,instructing, giving us a broadbase way of seeing the world and allowing us to voice our opinion and constantly ask questions. The SURPRISING THING in hindsight was the fact that my parents economic circumstances were very low and their schooling was similar. How they managed to be so wise, was it a default phenomena ?
Its focus was on the teacher and his or her style not on learning. I was always eager TO LEARN but had problems understanding WHAT THE TEACHER WAS TRYING TO TEACH. He or she was NOT TEACHING ME TO UNDERSTAND. He or She was teaching me to learn like him or her. I was being instructed to be a FOLLOWER. Not to learn to unearth my own identity. So there were constant conflicts-more so at Secondary School. So at a reunion function several years after I asked one of the the teachers that I had much respect for (although we had many hostile public debates on my work submissions ) why the teachers used their veto for me to become the head boy of the school( I did not get the nod from the students-I was not popular). She said I always showed that I was more mature than my colleagues.
The ones like the Facebook boss and the founders of Apple. It is said that they opt out of schooling institutions.
p.s. Understand this concept:- I want to Learn. Teach me to do that! Please don't teach me how you learn. If you want to do that you are doing that wrong if you give me descriptions. You have to go through your process of learning, then I'll see if it is right for me.
