    Feb 23 2013: The best example is Khan Academy. Salman believed that it was possible to teach subjects/topics without being tied down within any curriculum and he created no less than a revolution. Teaching practice and teaching philosphy are two entirely different matter. Any person who is unable to keep separate his personal beliefs regarding a topic being taught and presents it as academic consensus, is not a teacher but a preacher.
