Anything to do with driving on different sides of the road? The education being the driving test?

TOEFL relevant? I am sorely tempted to say yes, but honesty compels me to say no :)

does the being right refer to making a prediction of the future? to a belief of fact? being morally right?

I think I asked those same questions on the military puzzle to not much advantage. Well, one of these days I'll be right

does the being right refer to making a prediction of the future? no to a belief of fact? not really being morally right? no

Does "being right" refer to the faint hope that Tony Blair's 4th Way (if and when it comes out) will prove to be the right way?

Does "being right" refer to the faint hope that Tony Blair's 4th Way (if and when it comes out) will prove to be the right way? no - there is little hope of that. Indeed, even if he uses the eight major points of the compass, opinion is that he still has no chance of finding the right way.

<How do you get to Carnegie Hall?> You either practice, or are John Tesh, neither of which sounds too appealing

does the educational similarity involve having a certain degree/qualificaton? knowing a certain fact or having a certain skill?

Will this eventual rightness have to do with a particular date?

Lets haul a few fields at you and see if one sticks...

For the 'education' we are looking for, is science relevant? literature? sports? entertainment? biology? chemistry? physics? sociology? history? politics? computer? internet? technology? exploration? astronomy? geography? trade?

For the 'education' we are looking for, is science relevant? no literature? not really, but this is easily the closest sports? entertainment? biology? chemistry? physics? sociology? history? politics? computer? internet? technology? exploration? astronomy? geography? trade? none of those, sorry :(

Is it a foregone conclusion that we definitely will be right? A definite provable fact?
Or more of a hopeful wish? an educated guess? a statement that can't be empirically proved right?
In this context, does "right" mean the same as "correct/true"?
Is the thing that we'll be right about related to the English language? If so, any of these remotely close?:
"English will be the dominant world language."
"English is the best language in the world."
"English will be an obsolete language before long."
"English is becoming the most convoluted language in history."
"English is by far the easiest language in the world to learn."
"English will be... (something)."
