Any home educating parent, that’s who.   Especially those who follow an unschooling or natural learning style in their homes.  The rest of the world is slowly, ever so slowly, cottoning on to the idea that kids can learn just the same way as adults – through following their interests and being self-motivated and self-directed.

And if you are in any doubt that this is possible, take a wander across to YouTube and do a search for Sugata Mitra and his marvellous experiments in the slums of India.  There are a few, so perhaps starting with his TED Talk.
