By inhibiting the intellectual capacity of students, the system effectively destroys creativity, the investigative eye and curiosity of learners. Instead, it turns them into information storage devices with a passive behavior (Nyarienda, 2011).

Individualism is also fostered by the educators as they try to pass their knowledge to students. The system neglects the freedom of the learner and aligns him to fit the needs of the society since the society seeks to maintain its traditional ways.  This view is explored by Dewey (1938) where he explains that books are seen as the store of wisdom and teachers are the bridge between the students and this wisdom. However, what the educators fail to acknowledge is that the gap between them and the new age learners is so large that the learning methodologies are beyond the scope of the learners.
