  •  You can't teach critical thinking with bullshit. (7+ / 0-)

    This seems to be the recurring core problem with education in the United States: You can't teach a person critical thinking skills and bullshit them at the same time. You will be successful at one task or the other; never both.

    The more dedicated adults are to maintaining double standards and teaching young people one set of "facts" while demonstrating another, the more quickly young people disengage from learning. School becomes a point-winning game at best.
