Also about education+49Free education and medical care have generally allowed progress in a democratic society. Why some rich countries like the U.S.A. and Canada or some other countries do not imitate France and do away with tuition fees at the university and post secondary levels, with minimal administrative fees at the post-graduate level?

Also about education+838Our education system is less about learning than it is about superficially showing that we've learned something. Standardized tests are proof of this. You get shoved a whole textbook of factoids,and then you regurgitate it all in a three hour test at the end of the year. Rarely are we taught the significance and purpose of what we learn; we learn just to show that we've learned. Our educational system goes for the cheap-shot quicky: here's a fact. Memorize it. Repeat it. This is education. amirite?
