A Little Harmless Mediocrity

As I mentioned in my last post, the concept of teaching in this country is a little misguided.

The method we currently use is, in effect, telling our students that they are too stupid to learn anything so we have to tell them how to do everything, every step of the way.

We tell them that they cannot figure out this stuff on their own so we have to tell them and show them each separate part. Without experimentation and being challenged to actually use their brains, how are any of these young people ever going to learn how to actually apply any of this data or use it in an innovative way?

Well, that’s not likely, is it? But there is a positive side to all this:

This system produces adults who cannot think for themselves and will be nothing but a group of sheep.

But, hey, that works out pretty good for this government, doesn’t it?

This is mediocrity at it’s finest.
