Humans Applauded for Aping Teacher

Apes dissed for seeing through teacher's bullshit.

We're doomed.

Am I missing something here? The children perform no problem-solving whatsoever. They simply do what the teacher says, even if it might dawn on some of them that much of what she's taught them to do is pointless. The apes -- unconcerned about bad report cards, detention, or pissing off the teachers union -- ignore the teacher's nonsense, solve the problem, and get paid. In fact, they solve the problem more efficiently, and produce the desired result more quickly. That is, their productivity is considerably higher than that of the humans.

Of course, one can see examples of the same phenomenon in real life.
