Education today remains firmly rooted in the assumption that students who have collected enough information and demonstrated that they understand it should be able to move up Bloom’s taxonomy into the application stage. The goal altogether was and is to measure the mental understanding or retention of information about a whole range of fields and subjects about which the student needs to care nothing for they will never "have to use it again.”
The consumerization of higher education may be the most successful deception of the 21st century. Entitlement has been taught by the fundamental assumption of nearly every educational practice: it is possible to be passively educated. In other words, an education can happen to you if you are willing to spend enough time and money to acquire it.
It does not matter whether the methods are teacher-centric or student-centric. As long as the whole experience maintains its info-centric bias, it will fail to produce the kind of results that most students, parents, teachers, and administrators are looking for.
