in education, like anything else on such a universal scale, is a large undertaking but reclaims the concept that making our world sustainable is a global effort. While the cause of the problems for the suffering communities of the world are often so basic as a lack of clean water, the effects can be devastating and truly detrimental on any progress. The increase of education provides almost limitless means to the improvement of social welfare, general health, and environmental consciousness, all of which lead to progressive societies rather than cultural disasters. At the end of the chapter, Brown upholds that education is a “cornerstone of both human capital development and population stabilization” (191). If people are unaware of simple ways to better their standard of living, then no progress in global hunger, population control, or general health will ever be made. Though a small farm may not seem like a progressive change, the effects that education will have on the quality of someone's life will bring out the best of societies that have been written off by politicians as too destitute to have any real contribution to this world.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
