While reading Unended Quest: An Intellectual Autobiography by Karl R. Popper, I found a superb quote on Popper’s dream of future education.
If I thought of a future, I dreamt of one day founding a school in which young people could learn without boredom, and would be stimulated to pose problems and discuss them; a school in which no unwanted answers to unasked questions would have to be listened to; in which one did not study for the sake of passing examinations.
Popper had this in mind in the 1920s. Still in 2010, almost 2011, schools are excellent at destroying creativity. Popper would be really mad at standardize exams like SAT, GMAT, LSAT, and all that crap
