Definition of Education



Definition of Education

Education what is it? It is defined as: 1. The act or process of
educating or being educated. 2. The knowledge or skill obtained or developed by
a learning process. 3. A program of instruction of a specified kind or level. 4.
The field of study that is concerned with the pedagogy of teaching and learning,
according to the American Heritage dictionary. Its etymology comes from the
Latin word "educatio which means to bring up"1 But what does that tell us. It
says to me that education is training not learning.

Education trains the youth into what society deems as a productive
member. We are not educated to seek out what our interests are . We are
educated so we can produce things. The age of art and philosophers is dead due
to our age of "so called" education. We are being molded into people who can
not think for ourselves. An example of this would be the giant "American War

They do not say who we need protection from. In fact there really is no one we
need to be protected from. The Soviet Union is no more and the rest of the
world is already years behind in technology. Then why do we spend billions of
our dollars on weapons. We spend in order to line the pockets of weapon
manufactures.

If we thought for ourselves then we would realize that the peop[le in
power do not pay us enough or that they are doing underhanded illegal
transactions. If we thought for ourselves that would cut into their profit and
we all know that can not happen. The Savings and Loans Scandal is a perfect
example of this. Big business made a mistake and then instead of dealing with
it they pawned there massive losses on the American public.

Education is a farce, a cruel joke that the people in power attempt to
trick us into be
