What is the Purpose of Education?

When I was a student, I frequently asked myself, “What is the purpose of my education?” And as my capacity to communicate improved, I began to ask this question out loud to the educators and special education consultants in my life. I’m not sure whether they thought my question was insightful or annoying—maybe a bit of both. What I do know is that no one had an answer for me or seemed to have considered asking this question on my behalf.
