"Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations, produced by enthusiastic effort and infinite labor in every country of the world. All this is put into your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it to your children. Thus do we mortals achieve immortality in the permanent things which we create in common." - Albert Einstein

There Is a Difference between Education and Indoctrination

Second grade students participated in an election in an elementary school in the US. They voted to have either a "pajama" or "crazy hair" day. In the Philippines, there were elementary pupils holding banners on the street that said "Marcos No Hero".

My daughter participated in the election and she was unhappy with the result. She wanted "crazy hair day". There were more than one section in second grade and "crazy hair day" actually won in her section, but overall the results were different. This is education at work.

In the Philippines, below was a comment from a parent:
