"The education system is so geared toward fact drilling and rote memorization that students often exit with a head full of dates and formulas, but without the ability to constructively think.  Now, if we readjusted the testing and educational system to focus on critical reasoning rather than memorization, then even if we knew fewer facts off the top of our heads — we would be smarter overall.  We would take a step toward doubt – and a step toward thinking for ourselves."

I bet teachers just LOVE when this guy raises his hand.
