But it was not always this way, and this book is a timely reminder of that fact. Similarly, there is repeated emphasis on the conceptual link between knowledge and virtue, and the unquantifiable practical utility of education in the relation between personal and public moral health. Regardless of political leaning or ideological motivation, the focus these diverse thinkers is on the imperative of self-cultivation within any form of education. At a time when historical and philosophical concepts are being thrown about to support particular political positions on education, this book amply demonstrates the dangers of cherry-picking such philosophical concepts.
By interrogating in historical detail the conceptual connections between the power to govern and the power to educate, it proves just how ideologically charged any assumption regarding them can be.

In this sense, justice means excellence.
For the Greeks and Plato, excellence is virtue. According to Socrates, virtue is knowledge. Thus, knowledge is required to be just. From this Plato concludes that virtue can be obtained through three stages of development of knowledge: knowledge of one's own job, self-knowledge, and knowledge of the Idea of the Good.
According to Plato, social justice can be achieved when all social classes in a society, workers, warriors, and rulers are in a harmonious relationship. Plato believes that all people can easily exist in harmony when society gives them equal educational opportunity from an early age to compete fairly with each other. Without equal educational opportunity, an unjust society appears since the political system is run by unqualified people; timocracy, oligarchy, defective democracy, or tyranny will result.

Thus, to achieve justice, modern society needs the Platonic theory education, for Plato's philosophy of education will provide a comprehensive vision to solve those problems in education.
There is also some controversy about the relationship between education and economics.
