Purpose of schooling

Question - Is employ-ability the sole focus of education?

Response - The rest of wisdom - of co-operation, goodness, rigour - is amply given by a hard working, decent community, as in my village. Education happens through living, house chores, field chores, helping a cool
ie mother ... Even employability in a sustainable lifestyle will smoothly happen in such a community.

I am not very sure of the role of schooling as I see it. In a distorted world where 'literacy' is seen as the prime skill - I suppose it gives degrees that will employ non-literate communities at the lower rungs.

The purpose of education is vast - and schooling has little to do with it.
