“Original Thought” (That Isn’t)

28 09 2006

Middle class kids can be more easily trained to regurgitate pre-fabricated answers faster than children who have not had the advantage of high-literacy households, but they get just as bored and almost as angry . . .

Kids would stay awake and quit being disciplinary bothers, if their billions of neurons and synapses had something to do.

And please don’t write and accuse me of supporting fuzzy thinking that has no right answers, because if right answers and scholarly thinking are mutually exclusive, we have a huge problem on our hands.
Right answers matter a great deal, but without good thinking, they are useless. . .”

This thought isn’t new or original, from me or its author. It’s a classic.
