Modern Education Systems

“We are shut up in schools and college recitation rooms for ten or fifteen years, and come out at last with a bellyful of words and do not know a thing.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

“It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to wrack and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.” Albert Einstein

Modern education is indeed broken. Its design is structured around forcing students to learn, rather than leading them to the opportunities and satisfaction of learning. To be successful in today's society, you have to follow the specified steps to obtain a piece of paper that claims you have completed it, and how well you did so. Unfortunately, learning to follow along if you want to or not, is not the same as absorbing the information out of pure enjoyment. Enjoyment lends itself to better absorption, positive relationships with the material, and critical thinking ability through questions and answers.
