We need to examine all our cherished notions and beliefs in education, bottom-up, top-bottom, inside-out, and outside-in. It's a complicated and worthwhile task. We need to re-imagine education as a socio-politico-theological system, and reintroduce absurdity and skepticism, and even a sprinkling of cynicism and nihilism, as tools of learning and instruction. Education should be used to teach to question everything and anything and dismantle all sorts of fundamentalism and unquestioned certainties deeply embedded in education and elsewhere, especially in religions. Education should be used as a source of individual liberation and empowerment, and as a force for social transformation, equality, justice, and freedom.
