How can one define a good “education”? What are the key ingredients? Is it a product of self- initiative, public policy, or a combination of both? Does education only take place in the classroom, or beyond? Should the church play a role in the process? Is literacy (the ability to read and write) the truest hallmark of an educated person, or should it be something else?
With all that said, write and essay that answers this question:
