An end for education

Last week I was reading a post from my friend Brad. In his post he asked the question what is the end of education. Not the kind of end meaning over/finished, but the kind of end meaning purpose. For me the answer to this important question is;
to be a positive and loving contributor to the local and global community as a whole.
This pretty much means, do what you are good at, do what you enjoy, find a place for yourself where you help the local community and the world be a better place. In other words the end of education is to help people to know who they are and where they fit, and then provide them the skills and knowledge to support this self-understanding.
