"Rote learning, long discredited, is now recognized as one reason that children whose families come from India (where memorization is still prized) are creaming their peers in the National Spelling Bee Championship.  This cultural difference also helps to explain why students in China (and Chinese families in the US) are better at math.  Meanwhile, American students struggle with complex math problems because, as research makes abundantly clear, they lack fluency in basic addition and subtraction - and few of them were made to memorize their times tables."
-Joanne Lipman, Wall Street Journal
