Should we force kids to learn material they don't show interest in?
As a college graduate I was thinking about how much material I have studied in all of my educational career and then promptly forgotten after the test. Is it a waste of time to try and learn something you are not interested in? To what extent should we allow educational autonomy?
There are a lot of different ways to be intelligent. Memorization and regurgitation are just one small facet.
