– Aside from sex education and intellectual property rights, elementary students should be taught critical thinking. Now, network executives might be reading this, and I’d like to pitch an idea: An educational TV show dedicated to teaching people how to think! In this time when information is everywhere and information is power, people should be able to discern the truth of things they see, read and hear. We know that not everything we see on the internet, watch on TV and hear on radio is the truth, but we wait until adulthood to teach it, at a time when students have already set habits about these sorts of things. Peer pressure would be fought better, repeating history’s stupidities might become a thing of the past. Democracy will have a better meaning.
Please indulge me.
