The Purpose of School: Learning HOW to Think

School is a place where people learn how to think. What to think is a secondary benefit, and is entirely dependent on learning how to think.

Young people used to take Latin and Greek, and still take math courses, because it teaches them logic sequencing, the essence of clear, efficient thinking (Latin and Greek being very logically structured languages). The learning of Latin, Greek and Math created efficient neural circuits in young human minds, and therefore created efficient pathways to process and absorb the rest of the subsequently exposed data called knowledge. The human mind operates like a computer, the absorption and functioning of software/data is dependent upon the developed possibilities of the hardware.

Learn how to think. What to think will be easy; and fun to confront. You'll enjoy school, I promise.
