True education is becoming more relevant and desirable than it ever was. Teaching people to read, write, add, subtract, think, evaluate data, tell truth from lies, recognise propaganda, see past it to identify vested interests, be able to tell whom to trust and whom to shun, predict consequences of actions, know what to eat and what not to eat for optimal health, to know what is one’s basic purpose and become skilled in the techniques of producing products on that line, know what is ethical and what is not.
That would be a true education that raised one’s ability to survive.
The school system should never be mislabelled an education. Hell, 80% of high school grads in NYC can’t read, write or add up! That’s not an education! That’s a perversion of the school system to destructive ends!
