← Classroom Clashes: Teaching evolution

Vorlund's Avatar Jump to comment 16 by Vorlund

Girl is told that fairies don't exist and starts bawling that she can't listen to this anymore.

Student doesn't like being a cattarhine ape he thinks he's a great work and more special and refuses to listen and learn.

Teacher gets uptight and decides that truth has to be shelved to avoid upsetting the village imbeciles.

What is the purpose of education? Would an educational experience of 40 days and nights in the desert cure their reliance on their imagination?
