Have we all forgotten the difference between education and schooling and has our modern way of life distracted us from the real meaning of education?
The following presentation, delivered by Professor Steven Davies, reveals that schools in the modern education system are not necessarily the only means of education our children should be exposed to.
Ideally, Schools should have been setup to enable children to be exposed to a broad knowledge-base that enables them to lean and make informed decisions later in life.
However, Professor Steven Davies argues that schools never really lived up to this expectation, but have rather been designed to produce loyal subjects, soldiers, and workers.
What are your thoughts? Based on your location, do you believe that schools have not delivered on the promises they make? Should we be seeking alternative methods of education for our children?
