The modern education system is making our upcoming generation dumb. As children mug up knowledge from their books and puke it out on tests they forget to understand the real essence of education. In an history class you remember all the id terms. In an Algebra 2 class you are made to gulp down large chunks of formula. What in the world our then our children learning? Is it all about who has better memorising skills?

The debate is open to all...

It is not necessarily the education system that is bad, it is the teachers that often don't explain their work well enough. I have had experience of teachers that explain that sort of stuff very well, and there was no problem with it. It is not either about memorizing stuff, math can be easier if the teacher explains it in a way that it can be understood by the students and if they explain how the people who came up with the formulas got the answer. And with history, I advise you take a look at the channel "Extra Credits" so that you can see how history should be taught.

Missmedic I am pretty sure it is much easier to govern people who understand the laws your government makes.

When it comes to education, you get what you pay for, and your government knows that the less educated are easier to govern.
