“It’s true that we don’t all learn in the same way…. But the situation we have right now … fosters an attitude that it is entirely your own fault if you’re in a lower level, or if you’re not learning as much. That’s not true. Those things are actually related to the culture of the school–when adults claim that students can’t achieve, this discourages them from even trying.” — Chinyere
