    Think about it Heart: s’pose some kid asks what 1+1 is, what answer are you gonna give them?

    She wants to be an actress/stage and tv performer. Last I knew, they had to memorize stuff. Would be ironic if she were auditioning to play Madame Curie in a biopic and not have a clue about chemistry for want of paying attention in class (“She died of radium poisoning? What’s radium?”)

    I had a teacher who said that you could graduate from school,get top marks … go through college … all without thinking!
    I didn’t understand it at the time, but it seems so obvious now… you don’t have to think, just regurgitate…

    Like Heart knows what a chalk eraser is.

    In Japan, the teacher puts just the answer/solution on the blackboard/testsheet, and you’re scored on how close you came to the correct way to get the solution

    Heart is correct, part of it is the best memories but not all of it. They also want to learn, they actually think differently about some things. Some of them even act differently.

    In my day, eraser-clapping was rotated through all the students in the class; everybody took a turn, and every day it was somebody else. Someone to clap the erasers, someone else to clean the blackboard (actually a green board, with yellow chalk. Don’t ask me why, something to do with it being better for kid’s eyes or some tosh), collect and sharpen the pencils, and one or two other things. But this only went on until the second grade.
