This will eventually benefit us as well because education, especially in developing countries, brings down birth rate. Obviously, a high birth rate uses up a disproportionate amount of resources and contributes to global warming and poverty due to higher unemployment. Furthermore, education is absolutely crucial to fighting the ideological war against jihadis. People join terrorist organizations because they have no other purpose in life and have been given few opportunities. If we increase education, these potential recruits will be able to find opportunities of their own and will develop a purpose that could keep them from going down the wrong path.
