Thinking about thinking

Too often parents and teachers teach children what to think rather than how to think.

What we need to impart to students is wisdom, not more knowledge.
Teachers should be teaching how science works, not just what science has discovered.

– inspired by Michael Shermer’s book “The Believing Brain”

  1. I love this… for most of the teachers in my country I’m sorry to say, its a high paying job. Teaching is not a job its a responsibility and a purpose to impart knowledge, and prepare them so they can make their (students) futures brighter, just like a parent does for their child, the mothers and the fathers away from home.
