6-year-olds are not half of 16-year-olds

Walk into a kindergarten class and ask for a show of hands on how many of the six-year-olds can sing. Every hand will go up in the air. How many can dance? Every hand. How many can draw? Every hand. Now ask how many can read: a couple might rise.

Then walk into a tenth-grade classroom and ask the sixteen-year-olds the same questions: How many can sing? One or two hands. How many can dance? A few. How many can draw? A couple. Now ask how many can read. Every hand will go up.

Let’s be forever kindergarten kids, less know-how but have the will-do.
