I think education is both using and improving knowledge and that changes the whole picture.
As long as acquiring knowledge is the educational goal of schools, educational opportunities will be limited, as they are now, to affluent families.
We don't focus as much in schools on educational knowledge which requires thinking and application, as we do on acquiring facts.
I think it is totally wrong and terribly harmful if education is defined as acquiring knowledge.
You can acquire a lot of knowledge without ever going to school.
