Also lautet der Beschluss, dass der Mensch was lernen muss. Lernen kann man, Gott sei Dank, aber auch sein Leben lang.

[…] education is not an affair of ‘telling’ and being told, but an active and constructive process […]

John Dewey

Education either functions as an instrument which is used to facilitate integration of the younger generation into the logic of the present system and bring about conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.
