Without education we would not be who we are today and would not be able to get anywhere in life.

The content of education is not as important as what a child may do with the contant. The info presented may ignite a spark that will not only use the contant but transand it into something that may be new. Inspiration from a good tutor can be this ignition point. The future is not yet set. We are all in the learning curve.
