Differing opinions about the purposes of education never seems to end. Should young people become educated to get prepared to enter the workforce, or should the purpose of education be focused more on social, academic, cultural and intellectual development so that students can grow up to be engaged citizens?
The question becomes glaring when we consider the current challenges faced by young students and school leavers.
Critical thinking, creativity, interpersonal skills and a sense of social responsibility all influence success in life, work and citizenship.

Uninformed disengaged citizens lead to poor policy choices that impact life, work and citizenship.
Each individual teacher has an opinion about what the core purpose of education should be, not only in their own classroom but also in school in general. Many issues occur when differing opinions about the purpose of education collide.
