    I remember the maths exam mantra "always show your working out, you get some points for an incorrect answer if you show your workings out"

    Show correct working out and answer you got more through.
    Don’t say, “It’s been a good day” till sundown.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good wife” till she’s buried.
    Don’t say, “It’s a good sword” till you’ve tested it.
    Don’t say, “She’s a good girl” till she’s married off.
    Don’t say, “The ice is safe” till you’ve crossed it.
    Don’t say, “The beer is good” till you’ve drunk the last of it.

    I disagree

    The point of erasers is to make like the mistake never happened

    Mistakes can be fixed without destroying evidence that a mistake was made

    Though your attitude does fit in nicely with your inability to admit when you are wrong

    Apply this logic to carpentry to see how silly it is.

    "Montessori education is an educational approach developed by Italian physician and educator"

    Looks like the Bulgarian picked the school.

    Do you do much carpentry Cullion?

    So when a student learns carpentry all evidence of mistakes should be destroyed?

    But that is besides the point. the article is about children in schools learning academic subjects like maths or english

    Your analogy is incomplete

    and your straw man is shit

    or red herring or whatever
