He means that if you can't remmember memories of past knowledge and present, you can't remeber any knowledge so what's the point in learning new things and then forgetting it right there?

I think he means that knowledge is not worth If you dont and never will have a memory and like in the book Jonas said he dosnt have any memory's and I dont think It will be possible for the giver to explain.

The giver means by without the memories knowledge is useless because you can't now about the past and can't teach that either all you now about is the present and a little bit of future.

The giver means without memories, what is the point of knowledge you teach people things when you don't even know if it's real.

I think The Giver means learning about something, like colour for instance, would be meaningless without the memory of it. That's like teaching children in our school about something they had absolutely no idea about until then. They wouldn't even know if it was true or not so it'd be meaningless and unimportant to them.

It is said that knowledge is power. There is also a saying that you learn from your mistakes. I think that without memories you are not getting a full education because you will only know the basics instead of all the things that are important like history and social studies.

I agree with Julia because the couloir spectrum is a big part of a child's learning and without that it's hard to catch on to learning subjects like art.

I agree with Raeed because it's hard to teach kids about things you are not even sure are facts.

I agree with Gabe because it's true that they would only know the basic learning material and not important subjects such as history or social studies that teach us about the past.

I think The Giver means by without memories knowledge is meaningless because it is meaningless if you have to do something the next day and it's really important you won't remember what you have to do and what time you have to do it so it is meaningless if you can't remember anything because there is no memories.
