Mass Education

"Today we are confronted with mass education - education designed to earn a livelihood, which means survival in a society comprised of ambition, pleasure and competitive pursuits. It expresses itself in the acquisition of wealth, power and social respectability. So survival no longer means understanding our own needs and living with sanity. Instead it means succumbing to all that the social world has created. This has left our educational system bereft not only of human values but even of simple human courtesies."
