What Is the Purpose of Education? The Worthless Debate Continues.
Rossides, Daniel W.
Change, v16 n3 p14-21,44-46 Apr 1984
The debate about the purposes of education is worthless because the power of education is vastly exaggerated, because it is assumed that improvement can come from within the system, and because the debators are unaware of the real purpose of education: socialization. What happens in the classroom is largely irrelevant. (MSE)
