'Modern secular education is failing not because it doesn't teach who Ginger Rogers, Norman Mailer and a thousand other people are but because it has no moral, social or intellectual center. There is no set of idea of attitudes that permeates all parts of the curriculum. The curriculum is not, in fact, a "course of study" at all but a meaningless hodgepodge of subjects. It does not even put forward a clear vision of what constitutes an educated person, unless it is a person who possess "skills." In other word's a technocrats ideal - a person with no commitment and no point of view but with plenty of marketable skills.'
Neil Postman in Steven Garber, The Fabric of Faithfulness, p.90.
