Our society today has a functionalist view of education. What that means in popular culture today is education is defined and measured solely on the basis of better job prospects at the end of a process. In other words, one ought to get the best education in order to get the best job, in order to be successful, and so on.

We no longer consider and appreciate the formative power that education brings to the imagination, creativity and other social advantages that come along with it. In this show we will attempt to demonstrate the difference between good education and the misguided ones; consequences of apathy on the subject and presenting good alternatives such as the Chesterton School of Liberal Arts.
