Encouraging and pushing children to *realize* their full potential is conventional educational theory. I never said they must be pushed, but some students need pushing, plain and simple. It?s that or let them realize later in life, after it is too late that they should have done their schoolwork. I have to go with the real world on this, not something I dreamed up.
