How to Know and How to Live

This was interesting to see based on a post I made yesterday about education. I had read an article about how education was becoming so focused on job training, which was described as basically 'learning how to follow someone else’s orders.' It really does beg the question: What is purpose of our educational system? Of learning? I concede that training for a profession or vocation seems important and necessary, but it feels complementary, not foundational. Should the foundation be a focus on critical thinking instead? Perhaps this is why Plato continues to be relevant today - his focus on critical thought and reaching one's own conclusions still ring true in modern life. This last statement summed it up nicely: "...which challenge readers to wrestle with some of the biggest questions - how to know and how to live."
