I think you're making a very important point. In my view, the main post-revolutionary goal should be a blitz of education including for adults. The US population in general has an extremely narrow and often downright incorrect understanding of history, sociology, anthropology and a long list of other subjects. Its important to not teach conclusions to people but rather to give them the tools of critical thinking so they can come to conclusions on their own that benefit the entire community.

Ignorance makes us susceptible to bigotry and suspicion. Knowledge lets us answer questions with compassion and reason.
