No doubt, education is the equaliser. More than that, it’s a tool that determines the future of every society. Giving the youth the opportunity to acquire that tool is a first step toward securing the future. This and many others are the ideas President Obama speaks unequivocally to American students, echoing all the fundamental challenges and steps that societies, and particularly our youth should embrace, to move society forward. I believe there are great lessons youth around the world could take home from this inspiring speech.
