The great Nelson Mandela famously said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” Of course, countless others have voiced similar sentiments, but Mandela’s convictions about the power of education carried a certain gravitas. After all, the legendary South African anti-apartheid activist and leader actually did change the world.
Nelson Mandela coined this famous quote in 2003 in a speech commemorating the launch of a group working to improve education and health in the nation he endured so much to transform. His commitment to the power of pedagogy transcended mere words.
How about you? If you are a teacher, tutor, trainer, coach, or any other type of educator, you wield this selfsame weapon, the greatest agent of change imaginable.
Are you changing the world?
If so, how?
If not, why?
