    Brief comment... (I didn't read the whole thread but I think this is worth pointing out)

    The number one priority should be to make the students "good people", or make them humane, integrate them into the society and so on (you can't leave this big responsibility to the parents alone). It's a lot more useful to have a society of good people than a society of intellects.

    That is evidence of you not having read the thread.

    If your first assumption was wrong, why should I read your conclusions of it?

    (Maybe I will, if I get some energy, but no promises...)

    Oh, you're talking about this:

    Damn, you should have said so... I thought you were talking about the whole education. I'm not so interested in this kind of education you're talking about. I see a lot more wrong with the education of the young.

    I'll be off now.

    You have shown that you are thinking of education in a different fashion than I was, or in other words, we are not even talking about the same thing!
