The main theme conveyed in this essay was the freedom which education provides you. “Anyone who has read a great deal can imagine the new world that opened.” Towards the end of his life Malcolm’s main mission was to explain and convince people to learn how to read and write. He tried to share the freedom which he felt once he had mastered the English language, this was what he was primarily trying to share. “A Talk to Teachers” by James Baldwin was a pitch to change the views of society’s outlook on racial discrimination, it emphasised the flaws in society as a whole and how we were all the same regardless of our colour of skin. The quote ‘But on the other hand he is also assured by his country and his countrymen that he has never contributed anything to civilization – that his past is nothing more than a record of humiliations gladly endured.’ Highlights the flaws in society, how they are welcomed on a misconception, how on the surface they are shown to be treated equally but actually they are regarded as lower class people who are portrayed as not of contributed to the world in which they live. In conclusion, education is a broad term, it could be seen as an elixir to life, it provides individuals with knowledge of how to prosper and help them to better themselves. Education isn’t just textbook study though, it has numerous applications. To know right from wrong, morals and etiquette. Knowing how to use the knowledge you learnt from the textbooks and then applying it. That is the key to education. How to use the knowledge you know and adapt it into a day-to-day scenario.
