"'One of the unfortunate limitations of test-oriented education is that if children pass their school tests, they are considered winners; otherwise, they are viewed as losers and this classification is engraved in their minds at a very young age.
In an exam-driven culture, a good student means one who achieves high scores. In such a system, life skills such as self-confidence, contemplation, passion for science and love for knowledge are all underestimated. Education is just a passive reproduction of the ideas others have presented. Children are encouraged to simply repeat; they are spoon-fed, even though this method is boring.' Nataša Pantović Nuit"
