Do you feel that education is the best way to fight conservative fallacies?

This perhaps can be considered as the most talked about a topic after politics in India. In ISC too we have discussed this topic in a lot more different ways wherein we have debated on the superstitious beliefs along with the need for changing the education system in order to bring some awareness in the society. But do we really feel that educating the society would prove out to be worthwhile for eliminating the conservative ignorance? Here, the views can be many wherein few may come in support of this and few may feel that this wouldn't be good enough. But things don't seem to be easy and the reasons could be many. For example, we have been indoctrinated with the beliefs by our ancestors and is so much deep-rooted that it wouldn't lead to easy replacement in the near future.

How do you see this whole picture and what would be your response?
