Imagine that you're artist and you love to draw pictures of cities and people. One day, someone offers you an art kit with some great tools and supplies, but if you accept it, you have to draw nature scenes. You can still draw what you like best, but nature has to be your primary focus, and everything else secondary. You have no desire to draw nature scenes, but that art kit would be really helpful. Do you accept the offer?
How many of you said yes? How many said no? What is this offer, really? Why, the mandatory education system to which we have been instructed to apply our talents.
