School is supposed to teach us to refuse to compromise our integrity, even
if we go hungry as a result.

To learn how to botch a job, so that it can be finished on time and appear
to have been done properly, apply to the nearest slave.

However, "Philosophers charge high prices to teach us that material things
are worthless"

"Men must be taught as if you taught them not,
And things unknown proposed as things forgot." -- Pope
