Education as a Political Institution

Bertrand Russell, The Atlantic, Feb 08, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Bertrand Russell: "The prevention of free inquiry is unavoidable so long as the purpose of education is to produce belief rather than thought, to compel the young to hold positive opinions on doubtful matters rather than to let them see the doubtfulness and be encouraged to independence of mind."
