purpose of education

The purpose of education should be to prepare students for “change and uncertainty” as the president of Harvard University said at a commencement address in spring, 2011. To prepare students properly, schools should teach us how to organize and understand the information rather than how to memorize it. Otherwise, we will struggle to make sense of the information overload we are faced with let alone using it effectively.

this is the goal-and in a democracy it would seem at least an important part of the ultimate achievement-then we must examine our educational system from a new point of view.

I wonder what is realy the purpose of education.
Education is provided in order to have people equipped with essential life tools to lead their meaningful lives.
However, when it is taught in a notorious way, it can be a threat to the innocent.
Therefore, education should be what provides people with the essentials as well as in a good-willed ways.
