Many of those addressing the challenges in education are friends of mine and I know they have the best intentions, but to paraphrase Henry David Thoreau, they are hacking at the leaves of the problem while nobody strikes at the root.
While efforts have targeted higher education because of the spiraling costs, the most important part of the learning process happens at the grade school level. Here is where students are taught to learn, or at least they should be. But unfortunately K-12 education has become mired in an imprudent curriculum that drives most students away from intellectual curiosity.
