Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's a rather strange point of view. For me, one of the major drivers of history is the spread of humanist ideas through education. It's not some sort of thought experiment we're talking about; there are results which can be evaluated.

But in any case, I am not talking about teaching values, but about giving children tools. There is nothing ideological in teaching media analysis, any more than there is in teaching mathematics. Most people will barely use their maths learning once they leave school; they will generally have much more use for media analysis skills.
