“Education” As An Extended IQ Test—Spelling Part

https://grantcoulson.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/incentiveseverywherepicturecorrect1.jpg?w=444&h=288

    Do not think about, write about or deal with  human behavior without determining the effects of incentives.

   Wherein we see a fine example of contemporary educational practice. I defy anyone with a grasp of logic or elementary knowledge of teaching to find anything redeeming about it. In many cases, it is difficult to understand the instructions. This is from a Grade 5 spelling textbook.

   This is just more evidence that education is really just an extended and very costly IQ. The word “exploring” is a clue to—“what follows will be a random exercise, never tested for usefulness on any student.”

  I rest my case.
