Education in the future

Just read this article about how children are being bought up. I have this image that we're heading to a world where children are put into a matrix-esque pod, and told they are special, unique and that children always come first. They are never asked questions because any wrong answers would hurt thier self esteem. All assignments are given A for effort because a B grade would make them cry.

After 18 years, the pod is unceremonially unzipped and the adult falls out into the big wide world, totally unprepared, no longer special nor unique.

Well, that was depressing. Hang around until tomorrow. I've got a link to a very funny animation planned.
