Do what it takes to bring back music, curiosity, experimentation and fun in learning. Regimented learning has gotten to the point where most students hate going to school. This needs to change - school is supposed to be fun.
1) Get domain experts to share their love of a subject with the kids.
2) Bring back chemistry the way it was taught.
3) Music.. let people play.. make noise and fall in love with it.
4) Make education of subjects participation based as much as possible... learning through discussion, participation, trial and error.
