Postman means that the present quandary in our instructional method derives from its failure to provide scholars with a translucent, unifying "narrative" like those who encouraged past generations. as an alternative, today's faculties advertise the fake "gods" of monetary software, consumerism, or ethnic separatism and resentment.

In answering this question, The finish of Education restores that means and customary feel to the world during which they're so much urgently needed.
