If educational and cultural efforts should advance political and economic life, isn’t the converse also the case: political and economic conduct should advance educational and cultural life?
Proclamations abound: educational effort must serve the needs of nations and economies better than they do. Leaders and the public hotly debate what political and economic interests schools should advance and how they should do it. But let us ask as well:
- Is this connection between pedagogical and political activity unidirectional or reciprocal?
- And if reciprocal, what are the responsibilities that need to be met in the conduct of political and economic life to enable a people to realize their full educational and cultural potential?
