RE: What is the "Correct" answer? No, that is incorrect. What is the "correct" answer? "Okay, 'what'". Incorrect. I've taught you the answer now say it...

If the Prussian system was only what it stated, this could be worked with.

However, another piece that this system brings is a non-desire to continue learning.
Because anything more you learn will challenge your doctrines.

Like a religious zealot stating this is the only way to interpret these scriptures.

So, not only are we told what to think, but how to feel about it.
And then our minds are closed, sealed and locked for the rest of our lives.

No place is this more seen then in science. Where you literally have to wait for the old gaurd to die before knew ideas can come into acceptance. When, it should be, rah rah Einstein... but, the speed of light is not constant... rah rah New Theory.

Good point.

It has long bothered me that people often treat graduation like "Yay! I am done learning!"

That is horrible in my mind.

We should NEVER stop learning.

We may stop learning when we die, or we may not. Each of us will find out eventually.

Which isn't the fault of the scientific method. The ESTABLISHED authorities are pushing their authority in ways that are not actually scientific.

Sadly that is a human thing, not a scientific method thing.

So when you say SCIENCE and are speaking of the collective group of people that are supposed to be furthering our understanding via the scientific method I agree with you completely. They are letting their human nature take over and technically they have ceased practicing science at those points. They get away with it due to our tendency to fall for appeal to authority, AND appeal to popularity fallacies. In this case BOTH.
