Education remains a wonderful ideal.

Yet how do they (we) overcome the:
tribal self-interest
greed for wealth and power.

Even here in the U.S.
we have large disenfranchised populations of
the uneducated (or severely under educated).

Who takes responsibility for educating a population?
What do those responsible teach?
Can, or should, the U.S. educate an Islamic culture?

Do we not, in fact, "fight" to teach?
