What the Health Officer Says

What the Health Officer Says.

Dr Ogston, district health officer for Otago and lecturer at the Otago University on public health and medical jurisprudence, said : I have read the report of what Dr Truby King spoke, and I quite agree with him. The whole system is cramming to pass examinations, and not assimilating knowledge to be used in after-life, therefore the system leads to waste of energy and no good result. I speak of what I know. Many young students have come to me in their university course, and I have seen the evil effects of cramming. I take our system to be cramming without education.
