Why is it that education almost everywhere is referred to as "the system"? Is it not true that our children who are supposed to receive an education should be equipped with all the flexibility on how to use their brain power, and not just memorizing what's set in the curriculum? The curriculum sets the boundary, limits the development of the mind and also creativity. Yet "the system" is so strong, the teachers in it, who are now accustomed only to "the system", protect it with even stronger roots, to prevent anyone rocking the boat. The parents and society at large rely on the system and believe/live by the results it produced. Who looks out for the children's interests? No one!
