Dr. Martin Luther King: El propósito de la educación

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“La educación debe preparar a una para seleccionar y sopesar la evidencia, para discernir lo verdadero de lo falso, lo real de lo irreal, y los hechos de la ficción.

La función de la educación, por lo tanto, es enseñar a pensar intensamente y de pensar críticamente. Pero la educación que se detiene con la eficiencia puede ser la mayor amenaza para la sociedad … “.

“La educación integral da un poder no sólo de la concentración, pero los objetivos dignos en los que concentrarse. La amplia formación, por lo tanto, transmitir a uno no sólo el conocimiento acumulado de la carrera, pero también la experiencia acumulada de la vida social. “
(Martin Luther King, 1947)
