Re: Too many cooks spoil the broth

"education is pushed towards very specific skills of dubious usefulness and ignores the basics like structural thinking, abstraction, mathematics, critical thinking, finding+sorting+judging+selecting information, etc, etc."

Of course. If schools actually taught people to think for themselves, gather some facts, do a bit of analysis, consider some options and outcomes, imagine what would happen to the typical politicians and the typical wealthy in the West. It simply doesn't bear thinking about.
