Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. While education can be powerful it can be dangerous in the wrong hands and if not used properly. Public education can be used to help people, how misunderstandings can be related back to the lack of education, and how lack of education can fuel the fires of terrorism and extremism. Malala’s life was affected by other people’s misunderstandings and modern extremism. The first goal is to show people why public education matters and that brings us the readers, to the first topic. The main goal of public education is to prepare students for higher education. Without higher education world producers wouldn’t have the skilled workers required to make their plants run. Without factories or educated people we have no money or new product. If the teachers that help put educated workers in plants are not taught the correct things from the beginning, then they in turn teach people the wrong information pertaining to their jobs causing mass work accidents. That is how education is needed in the world and how it can be blinding if not taught correctly. According to, “Education in the Middle East and North Africa”, (MENA) or Middle East and North Africa, has taken great strides in education. It has quadrupled the average level of schooling since 1960, halved illiteracy since 1980 and achieved almost complete gender parity for primary education. Net enrolment ratios (NER) rose from 86 to 94 percent between 2000

It began as an ordinary day in Mingora, Pakistan, for a young girl returning home from school on her school bus. Suddenly, a masked gunman rushed into the bus and shouted, “Who is Malala?” Her friends on the bus looked back at her, and in the blink of an eye she was shot on the left side of her face. This incident was the spark that ignited a call for change in education around the world. Malala Yousafzai was the face of this change. She made significant contributions to female education rights by being an education activist and urging children to speak out and fight for their rights. She forever changed the lives of Pakistani girls who today benefit from free education and resources with numerous schools around their country.
Education surrounds partially the entire world. Children, women, and men all attend school in America to build knowledge in order to find a job and make money. However, there are some places around the world where only men have access to education. For instance, Pakistan; located in South Asia, numerous amount of girls do not receive the education like other girls in America. This is specifically a problem for children, especially girls in Pakistan because they are not going to school like the girls in America, achieving the same level of education. Instead, they are seen as weak and are restricted from doing many things that men are allowed to do, like playing sports, going to school, participating in public events, and even being seen in public. Malala, a girl from Pakistan, sees the educational inequality where she lives and decides to fight for her educational freedom.

Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist for education, especially for females, and equal rights to education in the middle east. She revolutionized education equality for children. She has received many peace awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize. The Taliban outlawed education in Pakistan, where she lived, for all females in 2009. She continued to attend classes and speak out on her BBC blog, the radio, and was even in a documentary about her life in the middle east and going to school as a girl despite the new law. In early October of 2012, when Malala was 15, she became the victim of an attempted murder by a Taliban gunman. She was shot in the head on the bus ride home from school. She was rushed to the hospital and after being stabilized, she was moved to another hospital to remove the bullet. After her tragic personal experience, she became well known and used her newfound popularity to advocate for education in the middle east. This speech is just one example of the many speeches she gave to bring attention to the problem. She also asked many other influential people with a higher status to help her bring awareness to the cause. To understand Malala’s speech the reader needs to understand what her goal is, what rhetorical devices she uses to reach that goal and how effective the speech is. She is quite effective in getting her goal across to the audience through her speeches by using her public speaking skills to get her audience to agree with what she has to say.
The book I am Malala, written by Malala Yousafzai herself, tells the tale of the struggle for education in Pakistan, and countries alike and the voice of one girl that changed the world forever. Malala Yousafzai is a young woman born in 1997 who was born in an area of the world that does not value women, yet alone their education. Malala grew up encouraged to be a woman of independence and intelligence rather than a simple wife, unlike most girls in the Swat Valley. A valley that faces many hardships. Malala was an avid student, but the arrival of the Taliban made education for women even harder to achieve. The Taliban were a religious extremist group that committed terrible acts in the name of their religion and wrongly represented
Because of this, Clover went to go an animal that can read only to discover that the commandment now read, “No animal shall sleep in a bed with sheets.’’ (Page 67) The pigs easily convince the animals that the rule was never changed due to the lack of any intelligence in the animals. Malala Yousafazai’s speech at the United Nations correlates to the theme education is used to gain power. She mentioned that her and her friends, “realized the importance of pens and books when we saw guns.” Malala addresses in this statement that even in the face of death and uncertainty, education and knowledge is powerful. With this idea of knowledge being a weapon to counter terrorism, the Taliban is preventing women from attending school because, “The power of education scares them.”. The taliban and Malala both understand the true power of education and they both will stop at nothing to obtain it. In conclusion, both texts convey the topics of education and knowledge in ways that represent the theme that education is used to gain
The motif of education appears very early on in this biography as Malala expresses her love for education and her desire to be the smartest in her class. However, restrictions to the right to an education causes the motif to develop. When the Taliban kept females from attending school using threats, Malala states, that education is “for every boy and every girl in the world” and “is my right”. This only drove Malala into her continuation into the fight for equality in education to fight ignorance, increasing the importance of this motif as a movement. The final message that sums up this motif and a major point of this story is the importance for females to gain an education in order oppose ignorance and oppressors.
In this book Malala’s problem growing up as a young girl in Pakistan was exactly that where she could not go to school or even learn to read which she valued deeply. Her father who was a school teacher and had opened up his own school enrolled her into his school where she quickly began excelling in the learning environment. Though while attending
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." The best way to suppress a people is to keep them in ignorance. To keep knowledge from one's mind is to keep bullets from one's gun. The power of knowledge is immeasurable and unsurpassable. In the story of Malala, this truth was self-evident.
Malala Yousafzai’s is a women’s activist for youth education, but primarily for girls. On July 12th, 2013, she delivered an address at the Youth Takeover of the United Nation. This speech is powerful, eye opening and deserves to be heard. She is addressing two audiences, one being the people that follow her same belief for education, some of those people would be at this convention and the other being the people that disagree with her purpose, like the Taliban. Yousafzai was in 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan, which used to be a popular tourist destination. As of now the region has been taken into control of the Taliban. Her father is also an anti- Taliban activist and educator. She, her father and tons of others just want thing to be like they used to. Where they had a safe neighborhood and didn't have to worry about violence. She delivered a speech riddled with excellent use of rhetoric to convey her argument. Malala’s whole purpose for her fight for education of the youth is so that it will stop future violence, She displays this purpose in her speech by using outward focus, compassion and personal experience to her audiences.
Her autobiography, I am Malala, tells her journey of growing up in Pakistan advocating for girl’s right to education. Like Matilda, Malala is growing up in a dangerous and war torn environment. In a Taliban controlled area Malala suffered the loss of her right to an education when she reached the age of thirteen. She also suffered the loss of everything she had ever known when she was forced to move to England. A child narrator in I am Malala focuses on the heart of the problem; one girls small and simple wish to further her education. Like Matilda, Malala finds peace of mind in her war torn home by immersing herself in academic pursuits such as reading books and committing herself to her schoolwork. However, just like Matilda reading is a dangerous activity in her home village. However, as Malala lives in Pakistan the consequences of rebelling are much more severe and pose much greater risk to Malala and her family. Unfortunately this means that Malala’s emotional ‘escape’ from the Taliban only puts her into further danger. Both Malala and Oskar are in some aspects of their character, very precocious. Oskar has knowledge and vocabulary well beyond his years and has experienced grief that not many young children have had to deal with. This maturity can also be seen in Malala’s mature perspective on terrorists and her courage in standing up to adults. A perfect example of this is when Malala explains what she would do when confronted with a terrorist, “I would plead, ‘OK, shoot me, but first listen to me. What you are doing is wrong. I’m not against you personally, I just want every girl to go to school.’” Malala’s maturity in dealing with the horrifying presence of the Taliban is inspirational, and it is clear to see why in 2014 Malala became the youngest person in history to receive a Nobel Peace Prize. However, like Oskar Malala has moments where we see her childlike nature, such as when
The candid and disinterested voice of Malala is used to create a kind of attention between the terrorist shot and people who don’t receive human right such as education. Furthermore, Malala used a privet aspect of her life to persuade her speech which is about terrorist shot. She wanted to find a solution by telling her story. The best solution is to receive education for everyone.
Education might not be the cure of the world’s problem but it’s important to be knowledgeable. It’s important to have an education because without it, it makes a person vulnerable to be guided in the wrong direction. Not everyone believes education is important in life and especially for a woman. Malala Yousafzai tells us her story and her fight for education in her book I am Malala. She tells us about her families struggle for the right of education and not just education in general but education for woman. She was raised in Pakistan and its one the counties in which some people believe a woman should not go to school or have freedom. Education was not as easy for her as other girls around the world. Sometimes people don’t take education as a privileged but as a right, but unfortunately it’s not this case everywhere and it wasn’t the case for Malala. She was also able to see by firsthand how illiteracy can be a danger to a person and how others can take advantage of it.
Apparently, education is the important part of life since it gives us knowledge of the world around, paves the way for a worthy career, and makes a man complete. Unfortunately, in some part of the world, education is not readily accessible made the number of people in the world do not have a chance to go to school. For instance, in Africa, according to the USAID Center reports that as of 2005, “40% of school-age children in Africa do not attend primary school and there are still 46 million school-age African children who have never stepped into a classroom.” Moreover, politics play a significant part in fanning the flames of extremism, but widespread poverty, high unemployment rates, and a lack of equal educational opportunities for girls are also important elements. Many of the educational systems in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia follow a pattern of patriarchal and archaic educational systems that teach blind obedience to religion hold tight to gender norms that devalue the role of women and minorities in society and do not reflect social justice. In addition, the traditional classes are not “one-size-fits-all” for everyone. For example, millions of kids simply do not find the school very challenging, a new analysis of federal survey data suggests. On the other hand, some students in the class said that they feel bored and stressed out when going to school. Other students feel timid when discussing the problems in face-to-face lecture, perhaps they feel more comfortable
