No. Most zoos are more like prisons.

Education is where you have a one on one relationship with a person and/or what you're observing/learning from. Please name one zoo where this happens?

No. Most of them are just captive animals used for entertainment only. Just business when they should be about species conservation. Sanctuaries not zoos!
