In classical times a man was considered educated if he had studied reading, writing, public speaking, logic, history, poetry, music and philosophy, rather than the vocational training that passes for education today.
They knew if we teach people to communicate, think and provide a context for this we create people who will be able to continue learning and growing, which is, in my opinion, to be truly educated.
This type of “education” which is often considered old-fashioned and out of date would clearly ensure that learners are prepared for whatever the future holds.
Finland seems to be leading the way in education and it is a pity that many education authorities continue to “educate” learners on how to jobs that sadly will not exist in the near future and do not develop the skills which will ensure learners continue to learn and grow, which prepares them for anything that comes in the future.
