Wow, those are some big questions! I think the purpose of education is to create a citizenry capably of understanding, guiding, and participating in the issues of the day from a critical perspective. In our system? I think the biggest issue is a lack of control by those closest to the students as well as deeply embedded, systemic bias against students who live in poverty, students of color, and students who's families look different from the dominant culture.

What do you think?
