Absolutely!  Insert electrodes into the brains of all newborns so we
can teach them properly!  The electrodes (radio controlled, of course)
would also be useful in case they act up in some way.  For instance,
by not fully appreciating their government's actions.

More seriously, just what makes anyone think that learned behavior is
passed on to future generations?  It hasn't so far in the several
thousand year history of education.
