Meanwhile, here is a simple observation. The communities that really care about rigorous learning in students - typically where life and death is involved (pilots, military, doctors, nuclear power plant operators, life guards) or where large sums of money are involved (Wall Street traders) - always invent and use simulations.
The corollary, then, must be pondered. What does it say when a culture that is in the business of educating does not invent and use simulations?
