I don't think there is any way that we can deal with ALL the factors. However, I would postulate that our job as teachers is to enhance the students' desire and ability to rewire their own brains -- and, as a result, to modify their own behavior. If we can instill in them the desire to learn, to acquire knowledge, to appreciate learning for it own sake, then we have successfully completed our task.
