Right Nick,

From my perspective it seems that world-wide, state educational
systems are being reduced to dogmatisms - rote-learning from a
narrow base of 'approved' text books.

Having taught adult students in the military & later in mid-East
& UK, think the main secret to good teaching, in addition to
some tricks of the trade, is to always have something truthful
and interesting to impart and to encourage vigorous
debate/argument. Students aren't stupid and want i) truth, ii)
intellectual challenge.

Right now though it looks like 'real' teaching is going out,
being replaced by bureaucratic 'lecturing' in a deadening
safety-first culture, where intellectual questioning is not
wanted or even allowed.

The change in just a generation is downright startling. And,
because mainstream media seem to have followed or even led that
change, it sort-of reminds me that "in politics nothing happens
by accident" (FDR).

Guess what other area has had inquiry restricted during this
