Jim, you have given a constructive and a solution to the crisis in our current education system. We are currently battling to improve performance and motivation of our learners with our current methodologies. Your presentation indeed needs to be explored and internalised by our current system. We are really battling to get results from our learners especially in maths and sciences. Well done. I will read more on how I can duplicate your achievements to our current education system in South Africa.
