Have We Stolen A Generation’s Independent Thought?

Mister Journalism: "Reading, Sharing, Discussing, Learning"

Education I look at K-12 policies and practices from the classroom perspective.

“We are teaching students, literally, not to think, but instead to clear their own thoughts and concentrate on following the path followed by the people who wrote the test questions. We are teaching them that every question has just one right answer, that somebody out there already knows it, and that you go to school to learn to say what those people want you to say. This is not a new issue in education, but we have ramped it up, systematically injected it into every level of K-12 education, and incentivized it like never before. If it has stifled a generation’s desire for independent thought, that is no surprise.”
