I must have been taught critical thinking by my parents as even as a child, I could see that the education system was mostly about regurgitating not even the "correct" answer, but the answer expected by the teacher. If you want to see who "broke the children," you need not look much further than that. I am glad that teachers occasionally realize that there is value to being able to reason about a problem rather than just returning the answer by rote. It is rare that grade school teachers even notice there is a problem.
