Well of course not? But Robin Hanson seems to think it makes sense to deny that particular purpose.

Sorry, I don't know if your responses are about the argument I'm making about that, or they're just observations that happen to be under my posts. ;)

To some extent, it's an isolated observation, but it's also an effort to correct what seemed like a drift (on my part, too) towards trying to identify a single purpose for conventional education.
