It would have helped if you had included a further explanation of what you mean exactly. As I understand the question, I must say NAY! Ther purpose of education is to provide the means by which a nation can become knowledgeable, which in turn maintains the country's credibility and social level amongst its neighbours high.
As far as I'm concerened, through education we discover how much more intelligent we become, how our social skills improve and generally, have a more optimistic view of life.
I do believe it is the direction in which politicians and politics steer us and how the few take advantage of the many that make for a progressive discovery of our own ignorance. What do you think?
