The Sisyphean task

The transformation of Education 
requires some heavy lifting ...

In Greek mythology Sisyphus (/ˈsɪsfəs/;[2] GreekΣίσυφοςSísuphos) was the king of Ephyra (now known as Corinth). 

He was punished for his self-aggrandizing craftiness and deceitfulness by being forced to roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it come back to hit him, repeating this action for eternity. 

Through the classical influence on modern culture, tasks that are both laborious and futile are therefore described as Sisyphean (/ˌsɪsˈfən/).
