Education- Nelson Mandela

The famous statement of Nelson Mandela is displayed at the entrance of

the University of South Africa thus:Destroying any nation does not require

the use of atomic bombs or the use of long range missiles. It only requires

lowering the quality of education and allowing cheating in the examinations

by the students. Patients die at the hands of such quack doctors. Buildings

collapse at the hands of such dubious engineers. Money is lost in the hands

of such bankers, economists & accountants. Humanity dies at the hands of

such pseudo religious scholars. Justice is lost at the hands of such corrupt

judges. The collapse of education is the collapse of a nation.

  1. Quite true. I think one might add also when the humanities are not properly taught, people lose their ideals and their ethics.

    I wish to someday study Mandela. But so far, I only read a bit here and there. Great human.
