Quite the opposite...it's why I'm so happy, most of the time, because I have nothing to prove to anyone. If I ain't interested, I ain't interested and that's that. If I am, then...I WANT to learn..
Part of the reason so many kids are being drugged to their eyeballs is so they can no longer disrupt a class of 'good obedient mind-controlled children' purely because they're simply bored out of their brains by being FORCED to learn things they don't want to, in hot, stuffy classrooms, where they're supposed to sit down for the majority of the day, when the whole point of being YOUNG is that you're fit, healthy and very, very active....
School is still based, in many instances, upon Victorian outlooks of 'Children should be seen but never heard!'
It was a bullying, cold, unloving concept back then, it is even more so today when you'd expect us to have moved forwards. But nope, it's 'business as usual' in most schools...and that's about 'control' rather than mutual respect and far more laid back methods of learning..
