I really wish that there was an education system that pushed children to study at a young age.

Do you ever wish that you were more intent on studying when you were a child of 4 - 10 years ? Do you ever wish that you could turn time back so that you could be a genious by now. I really wish that there was an education system that pushed children to study at a young age. Because at an age of about 4 - 10 years, the human brain is developing quickly, and it is at this time that it is able to gather the most information. What are your thoughts about this ? Please post your replies.
DragonsDemesne, are you sure you had memorized the card number? Did you look at the card and say "yes, yes, I remember it is that and that number!" or maybe you just looked at the card and "felt" its number?
There is a BIG DIFFERENCE between being SCHOOLED and EDUCATED. What you call education is nothing more than schooling...basically nothing more than training...and animals can be trained to do what their handlers want them to do...but human beings should not.
At the age of 4 to 10 years, yes, children are very impressionable...this is when they should be EDUCATED. They do so through the guidance of an adult teacher that realizes that children can learn so much more when they WANT to learn through their natural curiosity...than when it is IMPOSED and FORCED on them through mandantory government/state schooling...a system that destroys that natural curiosity and produces non thinkers and easily controlled robots.
If any of you think that genious is taught in the school system...i suggest you look past your own indoctrination at what it means to truely be educated. A highschool diploma/college degree doesn't mean squat when it comes to being EDUCATED.
