Self Education: A Simple Yet Vital Freedom

Ellie Ford

Education is the most powerful and sought after tool in the world, for it is a resource that no one can take away. School teaches us how to learn: it is vital that we use this skill and apply it beyond the boundaries of the textbook.  Americans have the privilege to learn about anything within a click of a button and draw their own conclusions. When we take the time to learn about current world affairs and conditions, it makes us have a deeper understanding and appreciation of our world.  Learning about the world expands the mind’s perspective and creates better, more well-rounded citizens.  A country is only as powerful as the citizens are educated.lli
