'Ready to Learn' Equals Easier to Educate

Generally, when Alfie Kohn talks (or writes, as the case may be), I listen:
The phrase "ready to learn," frequently applied to young children, is rather odd when you stop to think about it, because the implication is that some kids aren't. Have you ever met a child who wasn't ready to learn -- or, for that matter, already learning like crazy? The term must mean something much more specific -- namely, that some children aren't yet able (or willing) to learncertain things or learn them in a certain way.
You really should read the entire article from The Huffington Post here.
