Learning to Learn: A Latvian Way of Escaping School Routines

We can perceive the school as a place that children have to attend TO BE TAUGHT some, presumably useful and usable, knowledge, whether they like it or not, decided by somebody as worth acquiring, in a manner and format dictated by curricula, programmes, regulations and so on, or we can expect it to be a place where children LEARN things and STUDY to understand relations between such things, where they do it with interest and vigour and where an environment is created for everyone to fit in.
