People who understand education, understand this.

People who do not understand education, do not understand this.

This is the point where one progresses from the field of education, thought of as a branch of faith or politics, to education, thought of as an object of reason and study.

When someone makes this observation, I always want to quote from that old Kung Fu series*:

Grasshopper, now it is time for you to leave.
