If education is learning about the world, there is essentially nothing
that can not be considered as having at least  potential educational
value.  There are of course different degrees of educational value,
but using it by itself as a criterion is much too simplistic.  (In the
context of pornography, we've separated out recreation from education,
but I don't see how any imaginative form of expression has a clear
line between the two).
