Separating Education from Literacy

Schools should make a clear distinction and separation between education and literacy. These two areas should actually be studied in separate buildings and taught by different people.

Of course, people who teach subjects like physics, mathematics, biology, and art should also set an example to students, and not just be experts in their fields.

To build a proper school, teachers need to be patient, experienced in their profession, and know how to combine the specific subject they teach with the child’s overall education.

There is no such thing as mere learning. The student always follows the example of the adult, so the teacher should not only present the subject matter, but also show the impact of the subject on our lives. We must remember that although education and literacy are two separate realms, the emphasis must always be on education.
