Education should be free. The mission of The World Education University or WEU (pronounced We-You) is to provide free education to all.
It is our core belief that the global community should have access to education without cost. There is nothing more important to the modern world than education. It elevates people from poverty. Education inspires solutions to global problems. It is a transformative tool for those who master it. Education heals. It offers a second chance to those in need. Education is the great social equalizer.
And yet, education is available to only a small portion of the global population, mostly because it is economically unfeasible for the learner. For most, post-secondary education is cost-prohibitive. For many living in the third world, even secondary education is beyond reach. Those who most need education are prevented from it because they lack the resources to access it.
But education should be free; if for no other reason than the cherished belief that an educated world is a healthier, safer, better world.
And like the dedicated team of social entrepreneurs at WEU, we want to inspire an entire movement of socially conscious global citizens who will take the gift of free education and find ways to give back to their communities.
At this critical juncture in the history of American journalism, as the news media and the nature and extent of original reporting itself undergo a very difficult transformation, we must reflect on the inherent, incalculable value of original, independent reporting in our nation and in the world. Facts are and must be the coin of the realm in a democracy, for government "of the people, by the people and for the people," to quote President Abraham Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address, requires and assumes to some extent an informed citizenry.
Or as distinguished writer and author Walter Lippmann said a century later, "A free press is not a privilege but an organic necessity in a great society. Without criticism and reliable and intelligent reporting, the government cannot govern."
However, the number of full-time, independent reporters has been drastically decreasing. Since 1992 we have lost approximately one-third of the nation's newspaper reporters and editors in the United States, from 60,000 editorial employees to about 40,000 in 2009.
