to have your preconceptions punctured

< Previous | Next >


I read a news article and found the expression 'have your preconceptions punctured':

In the context given, does it mean that we should reconsider our previous beliefs as they may not be true?

Uganda faces major challenges to build up its education system. At the most fundamental level, it has to provide enough places for one of the world's fastest growing populations. So when a new type of award-winning school, supported by an international partnership, is being promoted to fill the gap, what is the great leap forward? Is it the curriculum, the technology, or the building? What makes it so much better? It's always good to have your preconceptions punctured.

Thank you.
