What if you think what is essential is education?
What if you think education is what is essential? (that's what I meant to say)
I think the distinction needs to be made between "knowledge" and "education" for this. I agree with you that what is essential is education, but in that education (hopefully) provides the tools for thoughtful analysis that leads to wisdom. If education is simply about acquiring knowledge, than it has failed its most basic mission, for knowledge is worthless without a framing principle, which one might call wisdom.
