He said that fear prevents students from making the most of their time in the classroom. "If our children aren't sure if they're going to grow up, what that does to their mentality, psychology is very, very deep. They're trying to survive day to day, wondering if they're going to make it past 16, 17 and 18. ... Our whole mantra about working hard sounds a little ludicrous to them.

It's because they were too scared of dying to learn!!
So there ya have it!
