curiosity is a natural and beautiful phenomena.
when generously facilitated, learning how to learn becomes the most basic, the most simple, and the most vital of all skills.
unfortunately, in public ed, as we have sought knowledge during an age where that suited us, we find ourselves bound by the very system that we ourselves manufactured to give us opportunity.
now that the ability to facilitate natural curiosity in a public school setting via individualization to infinity per passion/curiosity is possible, most of us are unable to tap into it.
it seems we need a manufactured short term detox/rehabilitation for any that have been through formal schooling, to get us back to the state of and believing in our natural curiosity.
