statement parallels the concept of the ripple effect, as we often see the poor and destitute as people who are in need of monetary and medical assistance, not a faction of society that could truly have a beneficial impact on society. Though increased agricultural productivity is just one of the possible outcomes of heightened global education, the spectrum of opportunities that even basic schooling provides for people allots so much more potential for success. In a world where politics seemingly dominate and often hinder the progress of environmental conservation and true humanitarian efforts, education is liberating force that cannot be removed once in place. Brown's claim that the poor, the hungry, the HIV-positive can contribute to society with education rather than wither away resonates deeply with me. Through teaching skills as basic as gardening, the foundations of agricultural knowledge, those who were once condemned by a harsh world can now thrive under the conditions that once rendered them nearly obsolete.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
