Education's foci when I was starting out was 1) to provide a means of discovering one's gifts and talents, 2) produce a knowledgeable, responsible citizenry, 3) provide economically for the next generation - not just our own children, but all children. Since those days education seems to have focused solely upon what can get a person a good job (defined as lots of money). Citizenry, communal responsibility, and personal integrity seems to have taken a far back seat to wealth and power by any means.
If my sight is foggy, I would enjoy being corrected. But if not, what do you see as the appropriate goals of a "good" education? Any examples of deep education in the mainstream?
