The meaning of education

In decrying the current state of the UK education system and its obsession with assessment, grades and league tables for institutions, teachers and students, Anthony Seldon reminds us that “Education in medieval times was based on the “trivium” with students learning facts (grammar), the ability to argue (logic) and how to communicate (rhetoric)”. Arguably our current ‘education’ system is missing something. See writings of  Anthony Seldon and the Times Feb 16 2016 p26.
