It is important to acknowledge that education is essentially a political activity.
Re-reading this week's chapter, I keep getting hung-up on this line. While I agree that education is affected by political views, I don't know that it is necessarily appropriate to state that education is a political activity. By design (or perhaps, by hope), education should be decidedly non-political. The reality of education, perhaps, is very politically driven, but something about the wording of calling education itself a political activity doesn't feel truly accurate.
