“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
Margaret Mead, American cultural anthropologist
This is one of the biggest issues we have in our educational system these days. Children are not taught critical thinking anymore. They are taught how to memorize things so that they can pass standardized tests. We need to foster their inquisitiveness and spend more time teaching them how to think, rather than telling them what to think.
