Inquiry-based teaching is not so much about seeking the right answer (although that is certainly part of it) but instead about developing inquiring mind.

Everyday, students come to classrooms with preconceptions about the world, how they think about it, and implications. This means teaching practices must draw out and work with students preexisting understandings and make student ‘thinking’ visible and central to the learning.

This does not happen if we teach students exactly how to think as what happens in traditional learning environments. This training of how to think would cause more students to think the same ways that were taught in the past. This can slow down the evolution of thought unless being able to think freely is focused on more in schools.
