Abstract

In a democracy, the most exacting and challenging job of a citizen is citizenship. This is so because a citizen is responsible for selecting the government and to use this right, the individual must be capable of decision-making. Education plays a pivotal role to develop this competence by helping us develop our ability to think clearly and grasp new ideas. An ideal and rational public discourse requires the interest of all citizens, the availability of relevant information to all and well-developed critical thinking abilities among them. Education aims at developing these critical thinking abilities in the citizens, where each citizen can make his or her own decisions rationally and can understand intellectual integrity and sift truth from falsehood, facts from propaganda; reject partiality and radicalism. An educated mind has a scientific temperament and faith in outcomes based on data. It has the ability to receive and perceive new ideas.
