What's the purpose of education? The Trump administration has one theory

 


What’s the purpose of an education? To get a job? To expand the mind? This is a question that’s dogged philosophers, politicians and educators for years. This week, we got another glimpse into the Trump administration’s answer to that question.

The White House released a proposal Thursday to merge the Departments of Education and Labor as part of a broader plan to reorganize the federal government.
