Eide Neurolearning Blog and Learning Styles

This post, by Drs. Fernette and Brock Eide who are physician-parents with a national (USA) referral practice for children with learning difficulties, is about school's lack of flexibility (or resources) to teach "each child the way that child learns best".

What interest me is also a comment by Steve Gray:
Last year went to China on a study tour, 50 students in a secondary classroom, no biggy about motivation to want to learn, they see people sweeping the streets and say no thanks, answer, work hard in school.

Westerners don't have this form of driver, and even with 25 in class teachers still struggle.

We, Chinese, also strongly believe that deligence can substitute intelligence.
