"A school that makes active children sit at a desk studying mostly useless subjects is a bad school. It is a good school only for those who believe in such a school, for those uncreative citizens who want docile, uncreative children who will fit into a civilization whose standard of success is money"
Creativity, leadership, curiosity, initiative, self confidence and the ability to think outside of the box are the things you really need in life. Even if you're a genius at maths and science, you'll go nowhere if all you can do is to regurgitate the useless things force fed into your brain on a piece of paper.
