ABSTRACT
The article presents thoughts and facts about education in the United States as of October 1957. Real intelligence is a creative utilization of knowledge, not just an accumulation of facts. Some people become lost in thought just because it is not a familiar territory. The real enthusiasm for learning goes out of education when it is reduced to a routine transmittal of predigested information.
