School is the Black Hole for NATURAL inquisitiveness

Most schools do suck the innate inquisitiveness that most students have from the day they are born. 

Where does it go?

By high school, most students do not even want to bother to ask questions about how/why/who/when/where/what about the material they are “learning.”  Most have lost the ability to formulate/synthesize deep meaningful constructs from previous knowledge/data and new concepts.  The good thing is that this wonder of self-learning can be retaught, but it is a BIG task!
