We're trying to raise creative minds

I like this quote from Dan Galvin's Thought For The Day mailing list):

The uncreative mind can spot the wrong answer,
but it takes a creative mind to spot the wrong question.

Incredible quote! Our school systems are cranking out kids with the right answers for the test. This quote motivates me to teach my kids to think and not just regurgitate the appropriate answers. Thanks for sharing.

I'm glad you enjoyed the quote.

I do agree it helps crytalize one of the major problems with our government schools.
