A key prerequisite of the exercise of Democracy is an informed, well educated populace, armed with the tools needed to analyse and dissect received information.

There is no other way to sift through propaganda and lies to clear the way for informed, wise democratic decision making in the choices we make for those who will be granted the power of government over us.

Yet statistics seem to tell us that our level of general education is on a continuous decline.
