Education has nothing to do with patriotism. School should not impose their opinions on children.

 @9H5ZJRSfrom Ontario answered…7mos7MO

Education is key in shaping how people see and express patriotism. It should teach a balanced view of a country's history and encourage critical thinking. Civic education helps understand how democracies work and why participation matters. Learning about global issues fosters a broader perspective. Education should also promote values like tolerance and responsibility. In simpler terms, education helps develop a thoughtful and inclusive sense of patriotism that goes beyond just symbols and actively contributes to making society better.
