Students should be given the freedom to choose what to learn. It has to be applicable in their present state of affairs (Dewey, 1930). Providing knowledge of things that happened in the past will be useless, if the knowledge cannot be applied on the current situations of the learners. Students will not be interested in learning things that can never help them in their lives.
Because of lack of interest for such knowledge, students will not be able to pass the examinations that may be offer to them. It is of paramount importance to note that this cannot be classified as failure on the students’ part but the blame should be heaped on the educator. This can be attributed to the fact that the educators need to realize that offering knowledge to uninterested students is a waste of time (Violas, Tozer & Senese, 1999).
