Edukashun, Eddukation, Edcutation

In the 19th century, extending schooling to those considered the scum of the earth was seen by many of their betters as threatening to general social wellbeing. But on the whole it was rightly embraced and valued by those who got it.

Today it's the reverse: unless we have a political purpose that requires us to lie about it, we lament and feel threatened by their lack of education despite pushing what passes for it at them at every opportunity.
