What is Education?

“Exclusive Test Data: Many Colleges Fail to Improve Critical-Thinking Skills”

“Freshmen and seniors at about 200 colleges across the U.S. take a little-known test every year to measure how much better they get at learning to think. The results are discouraging.”

The standard college model is not education but rather job training. Thinking requires people not to be politically correct or memorize and feed back facts. Thinking requires the ability to use experience to be creative to solve problems you never faced before. Today’s colleges just provide reasons which may not be all facts but based on cultural traditions.

“Harvard University revoked admission offers to at least 10 incoming students after the school discovered the individuals were posting explicit and obscene memes in a Facebook chat group that advocated sexual assault and mocked the death of children.”

Harvard is shielding students from getting experience in the real world. Some of these students will be fighting wars and crime. No wonder the students do not improve “Critical-Thinking-Skills’.
