Is this the goal of public education?

I'm afraid there are some in the government who do want this:

Governments don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking.  That is against their interests.
They want obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork.  And just dumb enough to passively accept it.
