It is fairly obvious to most that kids can learn if they are given the opportunity, and they don't require much hand holding to progress
--whether their OS is Linux, Apple, Microsoft or some niche brand such as Acorn risc, BEOS/Haiku or any other(s)..
They will be able to work through the system with little trouble, if they have something to do; some work, game, application or project
It is only the mythology of school administration and teachers that students need to be directed/controlled managed in order to get a result..
To me it is the same problem with how mathematics is taught--I especially don't like the right to left calculation methods instead of the left to right, thereby getting the range/estimate before the final result..
--little if any memorization, which hinders anyone doing calculations (even arithmetic), and usually teaching the incorrect one method rule
This is how we calculate, this is how it is done, nothing else works/is acceptable..
Anyway, I am sure your kid will be better served by learning outside the default stream and understanding on her own..
