More thoughts on education

“I wish that our current educational approaches put much more emphasis on following one’s curiosity and asking ‘Why?’, rather than on memorization of facts and rote reproduction of processes. We can hardly blame students for not being curious when our educational system doesn’t generally reward that. So, sadly, it is surprising when a student asks ‘Why?'”
