Empty classroom

In a letter to a teacher-to-be:

The reason I say that what I call the “conventional” model—because it is based on convention (how we’ve always done it) and not on how most children actually learn—is outdated is because current neuroscience, developmental theory, and psychology are telling us there is no normal. Different children learn and develop in very different ways, at very different times, and at very different rates.

Not sure what needs to be done on a national/global scale to help, but on a personal level much can be done. Anyone have any resources they'd like to share?
