Repeat after me…

“We say we want sensitive, thoughtful, analytic, independent scholars, then we treat them like Belgian geese being stuffed for paté de foie gras. We reward them for compliance, rather than independence; for giving the answers we have taught them rather than for challenging the conclusions we have reached”

G.E. Miller, ‘Teaching and Learning in Medical Schools (Medical Education 12 supplement 1978)
