Children should learn and succeed, driven by an internal need for accomplishment. This need, the product of inherent curiosity, is cultivated not through the use of rewards and punishment, but instead, by bringing an awareness of natural satisfaction: The satisfaction of success, which comes from within, and not from any external stimuli. This satisfaction, born from accomplishment, is the driver of human productivity. A positive feedback loop, which once implemented correctly, becomes a powerhouse of creativity and success. A dangling carrot is not an incentive for a true student, nor is an intimidating test. Stickers and other bribes are just short-term rewards and cannot be associated with real learning.

Although a relatively simple concept, it is striking, how little we see of this in today's world.
