Surely, we all are acquainted with the platinum phase in research community saying that “Garbage in, Garbage out”, but mostly means when we feed meaningless data into processing machines, the outputs will also be meaningless. However, this should also include bad research questions that lead to useless findings. In short, whatever the question being asked, likely the answer you will get. This article would like to point out the importance of asking questions over memorizing answers or explanations. In general, students should be taught to be more persistent, skeptical, and questioning, or having
inquiry mind, rather than to focus on contents and memorizing. And, hopefully, this article could more or less, lead to some changes in methods and preparedness of our children for work and living.
