The idea that Formal Education crushes curiosity is not a radical idea, no it’s been talked and written about for century’s. But this idea that formal education could be having a negative effect on a students curiosity has never been taken seriously enough to change how the process of education occurs.
To many education is a combination of two things, daycare and creating a readily available and compliant source of workers. Business after all can’t grow and profit if it can’t find workers who fit correctly into it’s predetermined slots.
Whatever the foundation of formal education was in the past now it’s time or maybe way past time to change the system from one based on creating workers to one based on creating thinkers who never have their curiosity slowed or even shut off completely.
