Captivity severely compromises a whale or dolphin's quality of life. In the wild, cetaceans have highly complex social lives which cannot be recreated in captivity.

I believe humans do need animal education, but how much education about each animal is there when they are not in the natural habitat? We can learn from underwater videos, cameras hidden in trees, or ground brush. Petting a Dolphin, and watching it perform tricks is not really an education about dolphins.
