Cut Military Spending for Education
- 1 Post
As of 2012, global military spending is $1.7 trillion. Too much money, in my opinion, is being spent on hatred and violence through war instead of being used to promote something like education for all. The Millenium Developmental goals we're discussed in a conference in Mexico City on September 10, 2009; where Mexico City stated "Stressing that human security could only be achieved through human development, civil society representatives called on Governments worldwide to cut defence budgets in favour of poverty reduction and sustainable development strategies." This was stated back in 2009 and the global military spending has only increased since then, and yet, so has global poverty and need in developing countries. I believe that education should be at the top of global agenda because our future starts with what we know. Education is the forefront of the world of tomorrow. Don't hate, educate.
