What is it and how do I get it?

A person that I work with has an amazing quote in their signature box on their emails. I am so tempted to just leave that sentence there and not tell you what the quote is but I would never do that.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

~Nelson Mandela

There is the amazing quote.

My grandmother bought me encyclopedias when I was younger. I loved encyclopedias. I grew up and while growing I was curios. The average child asks 73 questions a day. I swear I exceeded that number by double. Encyclopedias were of course the holy grail for me. Its like all my questions were answered in text and image. Ironically my oldest has made a hobby of being a volunteer editor for Wikipedia.

I had questions and I looked for answers, often I found more questions in my search than I did answers. Education is an enlightening experience that results in a person whom is well rounded responsible and helpful . Let me rephrase that a good education is the later a bad education is an experience that is taught ignorance and results in an irresponsible closed minded person.

If you wonder what type of education you have received are receiving or giving just do a quick check. Is the education giving you or the student all the answers? If the answer is yes chances are that education is bad. A good education will leave the student with more questions than answers. If your education challenges you than it is probably good.

Good learning has no end either bad education has a start and and.

Imagine how much better the world would be if we all worked towards gaining and giving a good education!
