Chomsky – The purpose of education

In this 20-minute documentary,  renowned social critic, philosopher, and linguist Noam Chomsky discusses the purpose of education, the effect of technology, whether education should be perceived as a cost or an investment, and the value of standardised assessment. Originally presented at the Learning Without Frontiers Conference in London in 2012, Chomsky’s views on education and learning are likely to stimulate debate on the topic for many years to come.
