RE: Educated vs. "Trained"

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
No one "force-feeds" you anything, unless you sit there and take it.

Education means encountering ideas--some of which you will not necessarily
like.

And you do have the choice where you go to school. For example I have many
acquaintances who went to BYU (speaking of your neck of the woods) expressly
because their mission and their curriculum is in line with their own
personal philosophy.

Complaining that you think we should have a strictly technical education,
because you might have to hear stuff you don't want to is a bogus argument.

With respect.

Great, show me the trade school option - oh wait there isn't one.  I MUST be
forced-fed political views and philosophies I strongly disagree with...
