If a weak point is pointed out early, there's a likelihood to take care of it prior to it's too past due and to come back up with alternative routes of training or of masking an enormous ability quarter. we've the technological and human assets to enforce such an individual-centered tuition. reaching it's a query of will, together with the desire to resist the present huge, immense pressures towards uniformity and unidimensional tests. There are powerful pressures now, that you examine each day within the nationwide and native newspapers, to check scholars, academics, states, even whole international locations, utilizing one size or criterion, one of those crypto-IQ evaluation. essentially, every thing i've got defined this day stands in direct competition to that individual view of the area. certainly that's my rationale – to supply a ringing indictment of such one-track considering. i feel that during our society we be afflicted by 3 biases, which i've got nicknamed “Westist,” “Testist,” and “Bestist. ” “Westist” consists of placing yes Western cultural values, which date again to Socrates, on a pedestal.
