What is the purpose of education? Is it to learn? To succeed? To secure employment and life security? or is it to free the mind? To paraphrase Dr. King, education should enable leaders provide a meal each day for the least in the society, Freedom for the mind and equal access to opportunities that permit an entrepreneurial spirit to flourish. Through education, we should be able to offer employment to those willing to work, social security to the elderly. Education does not silence prejudice, it repudiates it. When we allow prejudice to exist, we allow pluralism to thrive, and pluralism is a component of what constitute proper education and decision making.
