"The Western education system teaches students to be logically irrational
rather than creatively rational. We teach our children to debate and defend
their viewpoints rather than to escape and find even better ones. We teach our
kids to lock themselves defensively inside the square rather than take an
innovative leap outside the square. This makes them very slow thinkers."

It's valuable to get some perspective and look at things in different ways, 
too.
