    In my view it should be compulsory. I see evidence every day of people cherry picking evidence to support their own ideological biases, the following article being a great example:

    Would it also not improve the political environment with voters thinking more rationally about issues instead of relying on emotion?

    It should be taught by default in EVERY school. But it's not and it won't ever be because of the ramifications.
