Confucianism's greatest influence probably lies in education. Confucius proposes "in teaching there should be no distinction of classes" which means anyone is entitled to receive education no matter what class he is from; also he proposed teaching students in accordance with their aptitude. "When I walk along with two others, they may serve me as my teachers," he said, adding that any one should be modest and learn from others' merits.
