Is Education the Answer?

Just caught a discussion on the evacuation of New Orleans. The question was what ought to be done with those who are still refusing to leave their homes? The answer was something to this effect: “Since last hurricane season we have been educating people about the dangers and difficulties of hurricanes.”

Are we to assume that if everyone really understands that hurricanes are dangerous they will then choose to abandon their homes and property? Could there be more issues than simply an academic understanding of the strength of storms?

We must bash the Modern expectation that education is the answer. Education is beneficial, but not sufficient.
