Why do we educate?

I’ve just posted an answer on the Wallwisher (www.wallwisher.com) belonging to an English class I’ve never met, prompted by a teacher who I only ‘know’ through Twitter. Through the delights of Web 2.0, however, I get to interact with students from around the world. (see the wallwisher at http://www.wallwisher.com/wall/leaness2). Thanks to the Tweet-prompt from @aleaness.

It reminded me of this…

A very good friend of mine passed on the answer to an ultimate question. I always thought that an ultimate question was, by definition, ‘ultimate’ and therefore, unanswerable. Perhaps, just occasionally, however, the answers to ultimate questions are just very very simple…

The Question: “Why do we educate?”

The Answer: “For peace.”
