  1. I would have to say that my definition of education coincides with Einstein’s. I fully believe that those who teach are simply training minds to believe in a different way.

      • I definitely agree. I was pushed from one Algebra class to another without ever learning anything just because my teacher in my Algebra I Part I decided to stop teaching halfway through the class since he was retiring at the end of the semester. He based our final grades off attendance and since I showed up every day, I received a good grade. This led the school to believe that I knew the material. I managed to scrape by in the following classes with Cs, until I got to Algebra II Part II. I failed it twice, took it as a Summer School course and passed it. I still have no idea of what was taught in those classes, because I got my passing grade by doing Sudoku puzzles the whole summer course. >:(

        After going through that, it really does make you wonder what officials and teachers have deemed as the definition of education.

    • Thanks for adding to the discussion, David.

      I believe that this training should not be one-sided. Not only should the mind be filled with knowledge, but practical training should somehow be included. The head, the heart and the hand must all be involved in the education process.
