“Education is not the piling on of learning, information, data, facts, skills, or abilities—that’s training or instruction—but is rather a making visible what is hidden as a seed…
To be educated, a person doesn’t have to know much or be informed, but he or she does have to have been exposed vulnerably to the transformative events of an engaged human life…
One of the greatest problems of our time is that many are schooled but few are educated.”

Dear Activists:

If you ever identify yourself as an activist, never ever ever used the term “Get Educated”. Or any variation. You’re an activist. It’s your job to educate. Telling someone “You’re wrong, educate yourself” isn’t activism. It’s just stubbornness.

An activist.
