If, as the authorities seem to believe, you can apply the same rules of economics to the classroom as you can to a car production facility, then I suppose you can see where they’re coming from.
Point 1 – kids are NOT cars to be manufactured! Robots may work on an assembly line, but I have news for you, schools should NOT be viewed as an assembly line, which cuurently they appear to be
Point 2 – I can’t help feeling interactive “play” with a bit of Lego would have the same or very similar effect??
Just my thoughts!
