Education can enhance people's intelligence, and the dynamic order of people's intelligence far exceeds that of material wealth. Therefore, education can effectively increase the dynamic order of the whole society and promote social progress. Before people can gain intelligence directly through technologies such as brain-computer interface, education will be the core industry of human society.
In the future, it is difficult for us to use economic benefits to motivate people to promote their free work. But education brings intelligence, intelligence brings good work results, so education is the key to promote the progress of free work, the future education should not only focus on traditional work, but also pay attention to free work. Furthermore, the purpose of education should be to cultivate more intelligent and more multi-dimensional people, not just to train workers.
Society should provide good education welfare for all citizens, including courses and evaluations.
The current reality is that most people don't have the habit of active learning, so it is necessary to promote learning in other ways. For example, the evaluations should include a reasonable interest incentive system, so that to motivate people to actively learn various knowledge and skills, that is, the "learning for welfare" mentioned below. In addition, games should be integrated into education, for those who lack learning ability, gamified learning and evaluation are more effective ways of education.
As for the costs, as long as IT technologies are fully utilized, such as the Internet, AI, and virtual reality, the costs of these education welfare can be reduced to a low level. In addition, it is not necessary to provide all the courses and evaluations for free, setting some fees can filter out the people who really need them.
The evaluation of education welfare is important, it can not only evaluate learning outcomes so that people can adjust and improve their learning methods, but also has many other roles.
The evaluation results can be used to assess people's ability of free work. According to these evaluation results, society can provide better welfare for good free-workers. If a person passes more or harder evaluations, it shows that her/his potential for free work is greater, and her/his welfare standard should be higher. In simple terms, it is "learning for welfare".

This "learning for welfare" approach can also alleviate some current social problems. Under the traditional high welfare policy, without proper education and guidance for jobless people, it may cause them to lose their life goals. In this situation, the higher the welfare standard, the more harmful it is. For a drug user, sending more money to her/him will only make her/him get more drugs. Drugs, gambling, erotic entertainment and so on can all destroy a person who has no life goals.
For the society, the evaluation results can be an effective indicator of social development, and help people to improve society. If we can set up some international evaluations, and ensure that the evaluation results will not be affected by the cultural differences between countries, the evaluation results can also be used to compare the level of development between countries.
There are still some problems related to the courses and evaluations that need attention:
The courses and evaluations must be broad enough. Otherwise, the potential for people to learn and to work freely will be limited, and the evaluation results can't accurately reflect people's intelligence and ability, or even make people's learning behavior tendentious, and undermine people's freedom to learn and work.
The standard of welfare should not be judged by educational degree. The scope of the current education system is not broad enough, if the welfare system is based on it, people will be limited to the scope of the current education system, and thus limit people's freedom of work. In addition, highly educated people are more likely to get traditional jobs, usually have higher incomes, and are better able to pass the "learning for welfare" evaluations, but a good welfare system should take more care of the weak.
The evaluations should be independent of the course, and those who did not attend the course should be allowed to take the evaluations. This will prevent people from repeated learning, and encourage people to learn on their own. In order to prevent people from taking the evaluations without being prepared, some evaluation fees can be charged.
Do we need humanity evaluation?
The evaluation of humanity is only applicable to special areas such as legal trials, but not suitable for ordinary people. In particular, it should not be used to determine people's welfare standards. Humanity is complex and diverse, once the evaluation is introduced, it will induce people to cater for the evaluation standard. In the future, people can even adjust their genes and brain to cater for the "standard humanity", so humanity should not be evaluated.
