The aim of education is to teach us how to think, not what to think. ~random fortune cookie~
All through college, some professors stressed that one should believe everything that is taught in class. Many of theses classes were the general education classes required by the university. The exams were about regurgitating everything taught in class despite any possible disagreements. In order to pass, the student had to be a good little doggie and do as was told. Those who knew that education was about learning how to think were the ones who survived the mandated brainwashing.
