The Way I See It #202

Posted in education, Starbucks at 9:13 am by weiszguy

With every generation of children comes the hope for a better world – but only through the provision of education for all.  The millions of children who never see the inside of a school are a loss to all humanity.
– Charlie MacCormack, President and CEO of Save the Children

I can agree that education provides the hope for a better world.  I can agree that education for all is a noble goal.  I cannot agree that a child must see the inside of a school to be educated.  In fact, I might go so far as to say that a child who only receives education from a school (as popularly defined), is not really educated at all.  Mr. MacCormack’s error is equating education with school.
