JP2 and education

From the encyclical Laborem exercens.

"The organization of human life in accordance with the many possibilities of labour should be matched by a suitable system of instruction and education, aimed first of all at developing mature human beings but also aimed at preparing people specifically for assuming to good advantage an appropriate place in the vast and socially differentiated world of work. "

My emphasis above.

But I like the idea.
