Our so-called school system is a training program and nothing less.
When in school the teacher was asking is the glass half full or empty... I asked are you filling or emptying the glass please so I know how to answer the question... I was sent to the office and they never took the time to see, if you are filling the glass it is half full and if emptying it is half empty but if just sitting there it is just half way with no direction. I told them you are asking a direction and not option so without full details you are trying to cheat the people to get an answer you want.
Most still don't understand this simple question and look for a deep reply based on what they ALREADY know about the question.
Time we stop trying to trick the kids...
