Ray Bradbury touched on a few themes involving education. In this context education is:

not valued, you are expected to think what you are told to think

reading old books is against the law.

Individual thought is discouraged

Individual expression is limited through lack of education

Any introspective thinking is discouraged.

All of these points support the status quo of mindless thought encouraged by the party.
