Deep and meaningful public education in schools is the most important challenge and need facing society. Educational activity should be guided by the principle of reducing socioeconomic gaps, and closing the divide between talk and action. Social cohesion, and dealing with hatred of those who are different, are additional examples of educational challenges that must be met by seeing the individual within the group, strengthening the faculty in schools, and constantly re-examining educational vision vs. action.
