Modern education means to finish their brain. To make him more and more illiterate. Bhaktivinoda Thakura says, jada-vidya saba mayara vaibhava. This education is the expansion of maya. How it helps us? There is no question of help. It binds you more and more in material life. You are already illusioned, and it will create more illusion, so that you will be bound up with the material life. Anitya samsare moha jivake karaye gadha. And if we say that "By this education you are becoming more and more like an ass," they will be very much angry.
