"Don't let schooling interfere with your education."

The quote by Mark Twain that I chose to title this post never made sense to me when I was younger. I didn't understand how schooling and education could be two different things.
Now that I am just one year away from completing my Education degree I not only understand this quote, but ask myself "how can I change this and how can I be a teacher who allows students passion for learning to grow and flourish in my classroom?"

I saw this picture on a friends Facebook page and it has some very interesting points. After looking at/reading this I was left with the question "What can I do to change this?"  as I can see a lot of truth in each point listed.  Why is school the way it is and can it be changed, or better yet what would happen if it things were changed?
