Why the current system of education doesn’t work

Trinity College Library, Dublin

The present system of education is all wrong. The mind is crammed with facts before it knows how to think. Control of the mind should be taught first. If i had my education to get over again and had my voice in the matter, I would learn to master my mind first, and then gather facts if I wanted them. It takes people long time to learn because they cannot concentrate their mind at all.
