One-size-fits-all education doesn't fit dyslexics
So it’s not that so many young dyslexics fail in New Zealand schools, it’s that the state’s factory schools are failing them. The well-known motto of successful teachers of dyslexics is instructive: “If I don't learn the way you teach me, teach me the way I learn." That’s something a factory schooling system can never allow. Instead, high-achieving dyslexics of the past such as Leonardo da Vinci and Einstein would simply fall through the cracks, just as too many of them are now.
