Education systems are o­ne of the hallmarks of democratic civilization. But even a 100% literacy rate cannot empower intelligent, democratic societies if the information people are given--on the effects of toxins, the safety of food additives, the amount of habitat available to plant or animal species, the trustworthiness of a given politician, the legal rights available to a citizen--is in any unreliable or tainted. So if people are really concerned about preserving freedom and deomocracy, the solidity of information and the objectivity of our educational institutions must be prime areas of concern.
