Asking Questions

Just wanted to share the following excerpt.

" We believe that instead of posing questions to find answers it is essential to use answers to find increasingly better questions."- New Culture of Learning

What do you think about this statement. Certainly made me stop and think about what goes on in the classroom. Are we more concerned with students answering questions rather than having students continually ask great questions? Should we be satisfied with a final answer or does a summative statement lead to further inquiry?
