Education is the key to freedom. With a quality, well-rounded education, each of us has the chance to live the life we truly want to live. The goal of an educator, then, is not to give students a list of facts to learn by memorization, but to engender in them an understanding of the world. With this understanding, a student would then have the freedom to pursue whatever life they choose.
