More than dearth of teaching skills, lack of willingness to learn new things proves detrimental for teachers. By keeping themselves abreast of the contemporary trends and aching for learning innovative ideas, teachers are able to draw students attention. Things go awry for teachers when they deliver lessons without trying to know if students are really interested to listen to them.

John Holt believes that schools has failed to teach children anything useful, believes that without school and all the works and stuff that have to be done learning things are actually fun, or useful. He believes that students lose their curiosity and confidence right when they walk into class because classes will destroy your mind and make you focus on one thing only. Also, he thinks that children need to explore outside and to challenge things and try things out, basically explore not sitting inside a room all day. Next, school has failed by not teaching us that learning is separate from living, can not be trusted to learn, and that you have to learn from someone else.

Quiet people use silence as a way to express without talking so that the loud ones can learn from the mistakes when not thinking ahead.
