“In a rapidly changing economy like ours what really matters is ability to assimilate and analyse new information. Rote learning does not achieve this goal. Nor does very narrow professional specialization at least for the most part. Good teachers always focus on raising the level of critical analysis of their students. Problem-solving questions are excellent. Multiple choice questions are pretty useless, used only to save effort on the part of lazy teachers.
“Top level universities both in Britain and in the US are much better at raising levels of critical analysis. That is why they are successful in moving graduates into leadership positions. Though history and networks of course also play huge roles.”
