Coming to the end of week four of the Purpos/ed #500words campaign today is Tristan Ashman, who writes:

So perhaps the purpose of education is to get ourselves back onto a more human path, to somehow nurture and support the new generation to not only come to terms with their miserable legacy, but to transform it. We need to help our youngsters find the strength and confidence to go beyond the shallowness of the world we are leaving to them, and empower them to take a leap into a brighter future.
