ANTIGUA OBSERVER – A Trinidad & Tobago based educator has underscored the importance of a higher education, indicating that it goes way beyond improving one’s own development, but the entire society.

“When we see what is happening in countries of the world, where the people who are not college educated are making certain political decisions, we have to realise that having an educated population is just not the individual, but for the society, so we can all make the right decision,” Deputy Principal of the University of the West Indies (UWI) St Augustine Campus, Professor Rhoda Reddock said yesterday.

She said when people within the region receive at least a university education, they are better able to monitor their own development and have politicians that understand the current state of affairs.

  1. What hogwash.

    And up to now, those university educated politicians with all their degrees CANNOT come up with innovative and creative ideas for us small developing states.

    What you all fail to realize is that you can have all the degrees but without the proper state of mind it is a waste. Info and knowledge stuck in the cranium, but majority don't know HOW to put it to use.
    An individual without a university degree, can have an a far superior state of mind than a university educated individual and can conquer the world. Does Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Henry Ford ring a bell?All men WITHOUT degrees.

    When you'll start to tell our students, HOW TO organize the education that they are paying handsomely for, how to improve their state of mind THEN you will see the effects that most of you'll expect.

    I would not underscore the importance of higher education, for it does have its benefits. It becomes a waste though when an individual has not developed a superior state of mind. To achieve that state of mind requires no form of education. If you cannot have it, all the degrees in the world you possess would be USELESS.

    Think and grow rich by Napolean Hill. I suggest you'll university lecturers read this, and then you will understand why Bill Gates and Richard Branson exist. Again 2 men without degrees. One btw is the richest man on earth.
