When humans have important experiences, such as we have in school (either as a youngster or a parent), those will bias our beliefs about the experience for others. We assume everyone’s experience in school was like ours. (It was not—even for classmates.) We assume that everyone should learn what we learned and how we learned it. (This may be true, but it may not be true.) As a result, many adults pursue work in schools with the intent of replicating the structures and instruction they experienced, but that may not be what all students need.
