Teaching children is the responsibility of parents. If parents wish to pass some that responsibility on to a school, they should have the choice of what kind of education they wish their children to have.
I think teaching young children critical thinking skills is a GREAT idea, but when you begin talking about teaching ALL children in such a manner, you're inevitably talking about forced, government provided education.
If all children were taught critical thinking skills in government schools we would create a generation that would be able to see through the government's propoganda, and thus realize that government mandated, tax-payer financed education is irrational.
