    Feb 28 2013: The ability to question.
    If education is the answer to a question, then the ability to seek an answer is what leads to education.

    The system itself isn't designed for all people in mind and thats where it fails (it bores most, frustrates others). Atleast giving everyone the interest in questioning will allow most people to pursue education thats more suiting, rather than be deterred for a lifetime.
