Education is the limiting factor to the growth of Africa

To explain this we need to first know what education is and why education where did it start from.
The word "education" is derived from the Latin( ēducātiō ) meaning"A breeding, a bringing up, a rearing".
Education is believed to have started in Africa( Egypt ) in about 3400 B.C. The oldest known alphabet was developed in central Egypt around 2000 B.C. from a hieroglyphic prototype according to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_education)
This shows that Africa would be that most educated and developed continent in the world because we are blessed with good brains.
We have the brains to create an idea that has changed the world but why not. Why is that most uncivilized continent in the world but termed to be the beginning of civilization?
Egypt would have been the biggest economy in the world. My poor Uganda and yours too would have a big example to follow.

The answer is to miss the use of education. We spend years in school and they give us lost of knowledge but do not teach how to use it for our success.
Napoleon Hill says an educated person is not a person with an abundance of general or specialized knowledge. An educated person is a person who has developed the faculties of there mind that they can acquire what they want without violating the right of others.

This is prof because of men like Henry Ford, Thomas .A. Edison, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and many other how have change the world with little or no school. And the fact that most of the rich men in my country have little or no education.

I don't say that we should not go for education but that we shouldn't miss use it by going to offices and get nets just for a living.
We should wake up a sleeping giant in our mind and use the new technology for our advantage.
Steemit is here for us Africans.
