Education should be about allowing children to become who they were born to be. It should be about adults observing and listening to children to see what they care about, what they are interested in, what they are good at, and supporting them.
What education is about most of the time, is a group of adults who believe they need to fill a child up with information weather they like it or not. It is usually about some idea of what a child should become, who a child should be. It is usually about preparation, rather than being with the child in the here and now.
I believe that if you meet the child's needs where they are right now, you will prepare them for the future. No further preparation is needed.
