Throughout many years, education has played an important role in improving our minds and society. However, what many people tend to forget is that education is not the best it can be. Education is defined as receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university. Many people today questions whether or not our education depends on the people teaching it or if it’s the student’s responsibility to want to learn. We must remember that being smart is not good enough. Being smart and wise plus character that is the goal of true education. To what extent do our schools serve the goals of a true education?
