Description of this Heartbeat

This is a thought application based on making education, of any level, far more universal than it currently is. Education is a right. This application will focus on encouraging those with access to it to further their intellectual boundaries and expand their knowledge, and at the same time, share that knowledge with others. Particularly sharing it with those who are less fortunate than they, who don’t have the same access they do. Let's turn the students into teachers! - FBS_TECK3 & FBS_NikkiD

Why is this issue personal to you?

FBS_TECK3: Personally, I have always had access to education, in the general sense. This has always seemed normal to me. However, when I discovered that there are places in the world where education is incredibly difficult to obtain, if not completely inaccessible, it sickened me. I believe all persons across the world should have been able to understand the world around them and beyond them.

FBS_NikkiD: It is very important to me that I am aware of what I need, and want, to know. I am fortunate enough to have access to education; quality education is critical to development, but there are many people in the world who don't have access to even basic education. This is a serious problem that can be fixed. Nobody should be deprived of learning information that could improve, or perhaps save, their life.

FBS_MatthewM: Education is essential to bring positive change in a society, and the societies that need the most change usually don't have a proper education. So it is key to educate people in order to change the world for the better. Because at the stage of the world today, the world really needs a change.

Briana_WHS: This is very important to me because I want to help kids that can't hear and hard of hearing students. People should think about suggestions for communicating and interacting with deaf students in the class.Those kids live matter too. By helping kids that can't hear, we can further their education and they can possibly become successful of what we teach them.

LC_Sofia: This is important to me because education is the future of the kids, your development as a woman or man is on education.

‍‍‍Why should other people care about this heartbeat?‍‍‍

Everyone, everywhere, has something they can do to help the world in some way. In many cases, they don't have the means to make that contribution. Imagine the world, if everyone could contribute there thoughts and ideas into the conversations of Science, Math, Astronomy, Engineering, Physics, Philosophy, Society, Government, and so much more. To drive this point home, let me give you the quote that inspired this heartbeat. ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍"What if the cure to Cancer was trapped inside the mind of someone who can't afford Education"‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍ ~ FBS_TECK3

‍‍‍People should care about this heartbeat because we are talking about helping kids with their education not only for kids that are able but disabled kids such as deaf , those who can't read or see. The world today count those kids out because they think that those kids don't have a chance to succeed. Education is the major key to those kids success. Education‍‍‍ ~ Briana_WHS

Everyone deserves an equal opportunity. Poverty is linked with the lack of education. Living in poverty leads to stress, which can cause health problems, and result in a shorter life and a lower standard of living. Access would help not only individuals, but also families, communities, countries, and the world. It can open doors for people who may not have any hope. Whether it be due to the law, lack of money, lack of resources, lack of time, or any other reason, nobody should be deprived of their basic right to education. In order to really attack an issue, people need to be educated about it, and motivated on why it's important, and be able to know how to help. If more information on important topics were able to be shared, perhaps we would be closer to solving such problems. Using education to help people be more aware and see their full potential can help solve issues on this planet, as well as with the planet. Everyone has something they can contribute to make the world a better place. ~ FBS_NikkiD
