All over the world there is a rising trend in disaffection of young people, learned helplessness and devastating numbers of unemployment, even in countries that have high level of education this is already a fact of life. Creative thought and action is being drilled out of the young minds, not deliberately, but unconsciously by well-meaning officials and educators. By demanding that all conform to the same standards of achievement we are asking our young people to leave creative thought and action behind them in order for them to master collective mass of knowledge and skills.
