Education

Why do teachers always get so angry when a student questions the subject matter? Isn’t that what education is about? To question and learn? Not to memorize and drone?

In my eyes, questioning a subject matter to gain knowledge about said subject – is getting an education. Memorizing the facts and filling in bubbles is not an education. Education is about questions. Digging deep into the depths of our minds. Finding that subject we can’t get enough of – for me it’s history! And question the teachers. If we as students don’t feel we’re particularly happy with an explanation, why not question? Not obnoxiously, but there are situations where sometimes, you have to question due to biased text books and articles.

Imagine if Thomas Edison, Tesla, Einstein – never questioned the world around them. Where would we as humans be today?
