In Greek mythology, Procrustes was a rogue smith and bandit from Attica who physically attacked people by stretching them or cutting off their legs, so as to force them to fit the size of an iron bed.
Being a teacher in today's society implies much more than simply passing on certain contents. Our students are diverse, have different interests, learning styles, aptitudes and personalities because we are all different. Therefore, nowadays schools have to adapt themselves to that diversity instead of trying to stretch them or cut them off to make them fit perfectly in a standardised world.
