What We Teach and Why by James Baldwin

“The paradox of education is precisely this-that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated.  The purpose of education, finally, is to create in a person the ability to look at the world for himself, to make his own decisions…But no society is really anxious to have that kind of person around.  What societies really, ideally, what is a citizenry which will simply obey the rules of society.  If a society succeeds in this, that society is about to perish. The obligation of anyone who thinks of himself as responsible is to examine society and try to change it and to fight it-at no matter what risk. This is the only hope society has. This is the only way societies change.”
