It’s not always the case that formal school is the best learning option for all kids. Some children are ‘left behind’ and before anyone realises what the actual cause of the problem is, like the child not learning well, distracted or acting out with unwanted behaviours, the child is labelled with a diagnosis of this or that – change the learning environment and dispel the labels! Further some children are bullied, not only by other children but also by other parents and dare I say, even some teachers.
