I couldn't have said it better myself. Every successful nation on Earth has good educations and opportunities. In the Philippine they can build all the malls they want or improve roads or whatever but if there is no smart people at the end of the all hell will break loose.
There are three kinds of education: material, human (or social) and spiritual.
“Material education is concerned with the progress and development of the body, through gaining its sustenance, its material comfort and ease. This education is common to animals and man.”
“Human (or social) education signifies civilization and progress ….. government, administration, charitable works, trades, arts and handicrafts, sciences, great inventions and discoveries and elaborate institutions, which are the activities essential to man as distinguished from the animal.”
And there is the spiritual education - to develop moral virtue and attribute that human inherently possess – justice, compassion, generosity, love, forgiveness …….… noble character
