Political society

LETTER: Education prevents us from evolving into a society of idiots | Opinion

Albert Einstein once wrote “It is not enough to teach a man a specialty”. He believed that in addition to preparing people to enter the labor market, we all need to acquire a keen sense of values, a strong sense of beauty and moral good.

Walter Parker, professor of education and political science, also warned that we must teach against idiocy. Parker tells us that an “idiot” as used by the Greeks, was a person who only cared about himself, placing little value on anything that concerned the common good of our communities or society. in general.
