Examination-centric is So Yesterday & Let Learning Be Fun Again

I recently read a post on FB about a grandfather at the age of 69 finally getting his degree. One word there, amazing. My mother received her doctorate late 40s, after all her kids had grown up. Very proud of mummy! In both stories, they had one thing in common. They enjoy learning. That’s what…
