Mr. Cagle raises some challenging questions about the “what?” and the “why?” of education. As long as we are not clear on the purpose of education, we will be confused on how to carry out the purpose.

Maybe we need to ask ourselves on our reasons for making education compulsory. No matter how idealistic teachers are, they have to deal with a captive audience. They, too, at one time were part of that captive audience, but they somehow figured out that the current view of education is still better than no education.

Maybe one way to get a clearer idea of a better education is by helping teachers to be aware of their importance? I myself am awed by their heroism. I wonder if I am the only one?
