Propaganda and education

Seems to me that propagandists of all kinds (never know they are such because they believe their’s is the IT) have fought, some more vociferously than others, some in the covert ways that have truly caused incipit memorization methodologies to dominate) cannot allow for education that is about the development of critical ability.They fear that students might question when what they should want most is for students to question.That is a problem for teachers brought up to teach from the text to the test and so, education, to a large part, only prepares students to take uncritically what certain “authorities” mandate is right not thinking that they should be thinking a lot about who those authorities are and what they are being told.
