Education is a form of subjectivism. Depending on how it is executed/practised, it’s somewhere between a proposal and an indoctrination. It is the societally spreading of a (respective) subjective ordering of the world, with its taxonomy, re-constrcuted relations, highlighted and ignored connections, hierarchies, etc.
It may be a softer form of coercion than fighting it „out“. But it may (in certain forms and maybe in general, at the same time) also be a more authoritarian approach than the direct fight with current „winners“ and „losers“ and a current so-to-be interpreted result (according to a standard of a direct fight which is defined as having a winner and a loser and thus reduced to a certain measure, and thus relatively „delivering“ transparent results – intersubjective results, subjectively to be interpreted further afterwards).
