talk it up

“The big mystery is why so little student talking goes on in traditional schools. Here are young people who want to know about the world and are desperate to talk about things who are told to be quiet and control themselves. Traditional schools ask students to show restraint at precisely the wrong time in their lives, when they should be questioning and discussing and discovering.”
