Public concern about basic knowledge and the basic skills in education is valid. Society should continually seek out, define and provide every person with those elements of education that are essential to a productive and a meaningful life. The basic elements of knowledge and skill can be called the essentials of education. In an era dominated by cries for going back to the basics, for minimal competencies and survival skills, educators should reject simplistic solutions and declare a commitment to the essentials of education.
