A quality (and free) education for all!

I found this TED presentation from Daphne Koller absolutely inspirational!  Daphne finishes by stating three things that providing a top quality (and free) education could achieve:

  1. Established education around the world as a fundamental human right, where anyone with the motivation could attain the skills and knowledge to make a better life for themselves, their families and their communities.
  2. It would enable lifelong learning.  Learning doesn't have to stop when we finish high school or university.  
  3. Enable a wave of innovation.  Talent could exist anywhere; from downtown Manhattan to the far reaches of village Africa.  The next Steve Jobs or Albert Einstein could be a child, who is right now living in an Indian slum.

To find out what else Daphne has to say, watch her presentation in full.
