What is the purpose of schooling?

"We are told constantly that the purpose of schooling is to prepare our children to compete in a global economy. There is rarely any mention of a broader vision of education that includes a focus of the whole person. The emphasis is primary economic. "Education" in many cases has become a series of tests and hurdles rather than focusing on learning."
