Interesting Post, however...

A school for me is a place where one is taught to "think". Secondly, it is a place where one is taught how to learn. It's primary function is not transmiting "facts" and knowledge. For with the capacity to "think" and the capacity to learn there are more than enough place to aquire knowledge. For too long Schools have been seen as being the font of knowledge when in actual fact their primary role should be to teach students how to aquire knowldege and just as importantly, how to use it.

This basic lack in the education system is what accounts for many peoples inability to digest mass media reports and in so doing arrive at a balanced view of the world around them. Most just regurgitate last nights headlines.
