“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” This Nelson Mandela quote is a quote that should be reiterated through school districts across the nation. The purpose of education is to educate of course, but there is so much more than just learning that comes from education. When the youth is educated, it opens their horizon to become anything they want to be. It lets kids know that they don't just have to follow their parents foot steps, or do only what is expected of them. Education gives kids the power and weapon to become better than their parents and become their own person. This is why teachers and educators should take their jobs extremely seriously. When they're in the class room, they need to know that they can actually change a child's life. This is why it is so important that teachers help build kids confidence. They should not leave any child behind.
