The term educated is definitely a vague one. If one its to be considered educated surely then needs to be some common sense applied for example one should be able to point out the Middle East on a map. I think defining “educated” based on how they go about it, putting the emphasis on the process rather than the output is a great idea. The more you think about it the more you realize learning is a fundamental part of being human. So why do we kill this nature love for learning because we feel people need to know a little bit about everything. Why can my we just let kids/people learn what they want to learn though “passion projects” or whatever you want to call them. This type of learning has been responsible for untold advancements in science, literature, design. Surely by now we should realize that what we are doing isn’t working, so why not change things?
