Adam Robinson and the Princeton ReviewEdit

Adam Robinson, founder of The Princeton Review, wrote in his 1993 book "What Smart Students Know"[1]:

"No one bothered to teach you the most important academic skill: how to learn. Your teachers (and perhaps you) assumed that the ability to learn in a school setting was a natural gift -- either you were born with the knack or you weren't. This belief is entirely wrong. Learning is a natural ability, but learning in school is another matter. If school were structured in a way that better conformed to how you learn naturally, you wouldn't need me or anyone else telling you how to learn." [Page 2]
