Should intellectual skepticism be a part of regular school curriculum?


'Respectfully doubting and questioning authority, textbooks, teachers and internet sources' is an essential thinking disposition/mindset which should be integrated into the school curriculum. Nothing should go unchallenged or unquestioned. Do you agree?

    Thanks. Questioning headlines and internet information is a life long skill, which as you said comes naturally as you grow mature. But there are people who grow by age and still cannot think or have views of their own, they follow blindly.

    Thanks, when you say 'critical studies' in every subject would be important, I guess that would incorporate some questioning. Questions come naturally when we are curious or in doubt or confused, we tend to learn more from such perplexing situations.
