Also about reform+61The Catholic Church is in serious difficulties. Pope Francis advocates important theological , moral and economic reforms in the governance of the Roman Catholic Church, These reforms ,long overdue, are well accepted in general by the faithful in the pew, but the conservative wing of the hierarchy in Rome and some bishops and priests in the dioceses put up a fierce resistance to these reforms. I don't want to take sides but I find that Pope Francis is almost alone in his mission to reform the Church. Do we have to answer enthusias tically Hans Kung'call to support Pope in his reforms? amirite?

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? It's a choice of a society which might yield a lot of benefits now and in the future. amirite?

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?
