Basic Science Literacy: Learning Facts or Learning to Think?


Instead of teaching students what to think, a good science education teaches them how to think.

Teaching students how to think will not happen in a economy that is not a participatory democracy.

The current system requires students to be indoctrinated with things such as “capitalism lifted millions of people out of poverty”, and earlier, in the WW2, Nazi schools had to teach “why eugenics work”. Therefore, the current education in general is about keeping the status quo, it’s about what to think, not how to think.

A RBE hands-on educational model is about how to think, there would be no reason to tell students factually incorrect statements because it is a NL (Natural Law) system, where every administrstive task is based science, not the will of some leader.
