Education is the teaching of knowledge, skills and critical thinking. Too often it is also a way of inculcating cultural views and actions that are harmful to the person and to society. Personal preferences are not knowledge, religious beliefs should not be presented as facts, cultural habits that abuse women should not be passed on, inequality and hatred should not be presented as the norm - yet all these and more are stuffed into education systems to perpetuate self-interest rather than to help the learner become knowledgeable and skillful and able to think rationally.

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.” ― Margaret Mead
