To “alleviate ignorance” seems brutal until I considered that the literal definition of ignorance is to lack knowledge. My feeling is that a purpose of education is to learn how to learn (with a degree of independence) and to foster a love of learning but, cerebrally, I can’t disagree with Benjamin.
