Education is a way to teach regurgitation of information. Prime example is who discovered America if you were to put Christopher Columbus you would get a correct mark because this is what you have been taught. If you were taught to think you would know how ridiculous this is, as the Indians have been here for years before the birth of Christopher Columbus also so the Viking landed in Canada 100 years before him. But if you were to use these answers you would be wrong. The education system wants you to believe without question what they are saying if you question you fail. A yes - no answer or a true or false does not give the person an opportunity to say neither is correct There could be a third option that might be right. If you were to ask is gray black or white the answer is neither or both. Some new educational systems are teaching kids to think and not just repeat what they are taught. I only hope this becomes the normal and not the exception.
