"The only purpose of education is to teach a student how to live his life 聴 by developing his mind and equipping him to deal with reality. The training he needs is theoretical, i.e., conceptual. He has to be taught to think, to understand, to integrate, to prove. He has to be taught the essentials of the knowledge discovered in the past 聴 and he has to be equipped to acquire further knowledge by his own efforts."
聴 Ayn Rand, "The Comprachicos"
