Thinking ability and interest is the life of education

China is still a developing country where you had better have patience on material hardware of education! 
Now what I concern most is that invisible software which includes the quality of textbooks and how they are taught! 
First, we must throw away some outdated teaching concepts:
 Our aim is to improve the children‘s thinking power instead of the mere gowth of so-called knowledge! Learning knowledge is to sharpen the edge of your thinking-knife that would be smart when dealing with future problems.  Through thinking-ability-training students should feel funny in exploring the physical world and they would do research driven by  their own interest and motivation. 
So ’thinking ability‘ and ’interest' are two elements when we measure the fruit of our teaching work. The old exam-scores or marks are not scientific since those have ‘killed' too many innocent lives for innovation!

    I have found that many students have been forced into areas that they have not got the aptitude or interest in.
    To call them 'backward' is insulting as they may not have the required skills to succeed in the area.
    If you are a teacher, these 'backwards' students should be guided into areas they are more suited for
