What should be the relationship between schools and society? The  author and act

What should be the relationship between schools and society?The author and activist James Baldwin once said in a talk given to a group of teachers that one of the paradoxes of education is that precisely at that point when you begin to develop a conscience you must find yourself at war with your society. It is your responsibility to change society if you think of yourself as an educated person. Do you agree with Baldwin? Is it the primary responsibility of teachers and schools to transmit cultural values to students or to encourage students to question those values in an effort to improve society? Should teachers be prepared to teach in the schools we have or the schools wewishwe had?You may wish to answer this from several perspectives: as a potential teacher as a future parent or simply as an informed member of a local community. 700-1000 words
