How did you use your education to help or change the society? You did, didn't you?

A kindergarten teacher has as much power to change the society for the better as a pioneer in politics. The ability to change the world roots from education and inspiration. Did you change the world yet, even if its by the tiniest bit? So how do you think an education helps?

    Mar 10 2013: I try, at least. I don't speak in past terms, but at present. I think it's a job for all along the life. The way I (try to) do it is fighting for a wider, better and cheaper education and culture for everybody. I'm firmly convinced that education and culture is pure freedom. Those who don't like freedom for people, they don't promote a better education fon everybody.
