So I think we have to change metaphors. We have to go from what is essentially an industrial model of education, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity and batching people.

And you cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish.
