Aims of Education

The other day I was talking with a teacher about the aims of education. She reflected on how we should be preparing our students for more than just getting into college. I remarked that one the goals of education is to raise the pupil above the level of just being a consumer, above a materialistic existence of buying and getting and consuming. It reminded me of a few old posts I wrote that speak to these ideas. Hope you enjoy!
