HTF are we educating children these days?

The answer is;  WE ARE NOT.

From comments at Tam's, found at KB's.

The teacher said, "Well, we're not as concerned about their knowing the exact answer as how they feel about that answer." 

How a child feels about an answer? Um, yeah, it's no wonder accounting practices are what they are today.  That above quote was in regards to a student having arithmetic challenges.  Luckily, the student found a tutor who cared enough to search out the root cause.
