Steven Dooley EN100 April 14, 2008 Education at Its Finest The article “And the Truth Shall Not Set Them Free: Education Cannot Open All Minds,” by David N. Campbell is a very well written article. Campbell’s thesis is that students need to learn and think for themselves. They need to form their own ideas and thoughts about life and school, and to not just go through the motions and regurgitate information. Even though the article is very well written and explains Campbell’s thesis very thoroughly, many people will close their minds and not accept the thoughts Campbell talks about once he starts to say there was life before there was God. Once a person brings religion into his or her argument it is going to offend someone. Whether the writer says there always was God and he created the world and all living organisms, or if he or she says there was life before God, someone will always take offence to what the writer says. This article is overall unsuccessful because Campbell brings God into the picture and stereotypes all students into one category.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
