According to George Saville, English statement and author, “Education is what Remains When We Have Forgotten all That We Have Been Taught.” In 1932 education in Saudi Arabia was limited to the rich class; however, in the recent years the opportunity of having education becomes available to most citizens. Educations plays important role to develop countries in both fields economy and technology.

The second thing is that education approach depends on the repetition and memorizations. For instance, I remembered when I was in high school; in the final exam the teachers copied the same questions from the book in the math class. This technique is very popular in education system in Saudi Arabia. Students usually read from books and predict the same question from the book without any change that kills the students’ ability to think, create, solve question....
