132. learning is 24/7 for many kids...
you seem to lump everyone into the same category - in my house, we regard every moment as a teachable moment. Why do you assume that no one else does, other than you and parents of gifted kids? That's an over-generalization, as well as a quite negative and limited view of people, learning, schools and academic environments.

I am sorry that your and your child's experiences with "typical" educational settings and schools in general seem to have been so negative.
