If we want our kids to direct their education & be creative, why then do our schools fail them when they don't meet our expectations?

If we observe our schools has standard which are made by our teacher, our leaders, and etc but not our students. We seldom asked them what interest them. Yet, we fail them if they pursue their interest and not our expectations.

    Aug 10 2012: thank you so much for trying to answer my question. I guess we have a lot of ideas out there we just need to look into the fact that we are shaping the future when we educate our students. Its a daunting tasks because we don't get to delete the whole process and start over if we fail. And the sad thing is that we don't suffer for our mistakes but our students and children will.
