Education is slowly becoming a system

I am sorry about the slow posting, but here’s a tip.  Never say, “no, I am have some spare time”, because someone will come along and fill that time for you; as happened to me.

In this brief post I want to present the notion that the modern education system is actually educating to a standard and not educating for the future.  This has become an area of interest for me recently due to several academic related endeavours I am undergoing.  This style of teaching – to assessment standards – is not developing critical thinking, and in some cases, not even to a logical process.

But, rather than spout on with my views, I thought I would take the time saving measure of providing some links and asking you to consider the information and form your opinion.  Here we go:
