Rote learning is practiced in many countries.It is not a muslim or Turkish monopoly, the jews ,christians,buddhists do it accompanied with much chanting and body shaking to induce trance . In the classroom while rote learning has its uses in quickly teaching the basics analysing a problem and coming up with a solution is not one of them. Greece also suffers from rote learning as Orthodox Christianity and traditionalism permeates the very fabric of society a lot of Greeks , as a result. are very nationalistic and bigots. Did you see the Golden Dawn MP hitting a lady speaker on live TV? Child like reactions to the Macedonian Republic,Albanians and immigrants on various Balkan forums by Greeks are proofs. Meanwhile hatred is all your entries have to offer.
