Yeah. I agree. That's the best way.
Personally, I deal way better with abstract concepts than with facts.
But that's just me, maybe.
No, not just you. Most people.
And I think this is the root cause of most social problems in most
societies. Young people who are highly intelligent easily become bored,
and this is when they get into trouble.
For children we should use the same concept for education as we do for
food - as much as you can possibly push through the front of their heads
while they're still young enough to use it. (eat your vegetables)
Instead education systems seem to be becoming more oriented towards
child minding than teaching.
You quite often find that if you take a "trouble child" out of school
and put him in a trade training situation the situation reverses, the
child is no longer bored, gains a sense of self worth, and is no longer
a problem to the greater community. And it's a lot easier to teach
someone at 14 or 15 than it is when they reach adulthood.
