The Value of Education

Dear fellow students,
I just watch an inspiring presentation about education in Afghanistan, and I feel bad if I'm not share this presentation among you. This is a great presentation that might broaden your perspective about how precious an education is.

This is the link to the presentation.

Imagine a country where girls must sneak out to go to school, with deadly consequences if they get caught learning. This was Afghanistan under the Taliban, and traces of that danger remain today. 22-year-old Shabana Basij-Rasikh runs a school for girls in Afghanistan. She celebrates the power of a family's decision to believe in their daughters -- and tells the story of one brave father who stood up to local threats. (Filmed at TEDxWomen)
