Today’s education system is taking out the beauty from learning. Einstein famous saying “Education is the biggest barrier to my learning” perfectly describes this thing. I firmly believe in what Einstein has said. Education in schools is demolishing creativity and thus putting a barrier in learning.

Education system teaches every student the same way and taking away the exceptional qualities of some children. Albert Einstein resented the school’s regimen and teaching method. He believes that the spirit of learning and creative thought was lost in strict rote learning.

Learning is not just to memorize concepts, give exams and score good grades, in fact, to learn is to open one’s mind and expand the horizon. To see the world in front of you with a whole new perspective is what a creative mind does. We have lost our capacity for creation because our education system doesn’t stimulate innovation and creativity.

A kid always asks questions like “Why sky is blue?”, “Why does February have 28/29 days?” and “Are we alone in this universe?” — questions that once seems stupid but hard to answer by a wise man. Learning tells the kids to stop asking questions and go with the flow of this world. Learning makes the children live in a rotten environment.

To conclude, Albert Einstein learned that education limits the mind and formal education confines creativity and ability to question the world. At the end, emphasis must be given to on the child’s logical and critical thinking. (294 words)
