Moral Education in Huck
Due to how society has raised Huck he questions it. Society has left him abused (especially from his father) and misled him on ideas such as slavery and race. This is why Huck often makes the decision to "Go to Hell". Huck is a rebel. He refuses to play along with societies ideas and rules. Huck decides to live life based on his experience which leads to the adventure and lessons learned.
Intellectual Education in Huck
Huck did not stay in school long because his father
pulled him out. Huck was learning to read and write.
With much more to! However, he decided society was
wrong. It was not fair nor just. Huck decided he would
educate his-self by learning from experience.
Socities
How Can We Learn From Huck?
Is Intellectual or Moral Education Best?
Huck thought learning on your own experiences teach you to distinguish good, bad, friend, or foe. However, society does teach us valuable lessons so we won't make those mistakes.
If we redefine the current education system should it be based on...learning abilities, age, or morals?
We should define education with what you excel and place students in groups, that way creativity leads the students to a fountain of unexpected knowledge.
Education
How did education develop? Huck did not easily understand how society became so currupt. We developed education because We Got Scared.
However by developing intellectually and morally we became the humans we are today!
