True education means more than the perusal of a certain course of study. It means more than a
preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of
existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the
spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of
wider service in the world to come.
Ellen G. White
Countries with higher levels of gender equality have higher economic growth. Companies with more women on their boards have higher returns. Peace agreements that include women are more successful. Parliaments with more women take up a wider range of issues - including health, education, anti-discrimination, and child support.
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
