Just recently, Advanced Level results were out and people were busy sharing schools and individual students who excelled in these exams. In one of the WhatsApp groups I belong to someone posted results of one school which had the highest number of A level candidates with strings of “As” in three or more subjects. One of the comments from one of the group participants caught my attention. It said: “This is good but only a handful from this school are in managerial positions. They are taught to pass, not critical thinking. In any day, I would prefer someone from a different school.” This response got me thinking and made me to somehow realize how lacking our education is in inculcating critical thinking in students. Many of us are victims of this education system.
