What would education look like under each ideology?

Consider the different elements of teaching and learning through the lens of each viewpoint...
The goals of our education, from nursery school through to adult education, are clear enough. They are to equip children to the best of their ability for a lively, constructive, place in society, and also to fit them to do a job of work. Not one or the other but both. (Callaghan, 1976)
For such a society, children, and the adults they will become, will need above all to be adaptable and capable of adjusting to their changing environment. They will need as always to be able to live with their fellows, appreciating and respecting their differences, understanding and sympathising with their feelings. They will need the power of discrimination and, when necessary, to be able to withstand mass pressures. They will need to be well-balanced, with neither emotions nor intellect giving ground to each other. They will need throughout their adult life to be capable of being taught, and of learning, the new skills called for by the changing economic scene. They will need to understand that in a democratic society each individual has obligations to the community, as well as rights within it. (Plowden, 1967, p.185)
a system of comprehensive and ordered knowledge which, together with capacities for reasoning, observation and articulation, allows people to decipher the reality of their lives and act within it in a complex, effective and meaningful way… A philosophical approach which fosters caring for truth and justice, together with scepticism of whatever is being taken for granted and clarity and method in thought and expression. (Aloni, 2011, p.44)
