Not a Parrot!

“Memorization is a tool for learning, yes. But it must never supplant or supersede a life of ideas; especially in the early years of a child’s education. If the child is a person, he must do the work of a person – not a parrot. We owe it to our young people to expand their horizons, to give them new ideas to think about, to lay out for them wide open fields of study.”
