It is never that cut & dry, but yes, what children are taught influences their beliefs as adults (obviously). However, there are always reactionists, conservatives, & those who find new paths not taught to them. So I would amend it to say - The philosophy of the classroom of one generation will influence the philosophy of the Government of the next generation - if I were stating that idea. It is always happening, so & always being fought. The most good comes when people take the best from what they were taught, what was being done before their time & their own original ideas to make new philosophies.
