Successful Home Education

Chapter 6 Take time to learn and resource educational materials

A first impression of outcomes based education suggests that all children can learn. By looking at this statement on its own I guess it could be true. All children can learn something, but in outcomes based education this statement means that all children can learn everything they are expected to learn! This really sounds encouraging until it is scrutinized. I believe that there are students who simply do not have the ability to learn trigonometry properly or perhaps a foreign language. To make a statement that all students can master high school physics is a little far fetched, let alone suggest that all students can master a foreign language is beyond acceptance. I agree that children can learn anything, if their minds are set on learning any particular topic, but wouldn't it be better to encourage and direct children in their areas of strength, rather than bogging them down with unnecessary generalized curriculum?
