Education must be for everyone

Education “must ensure the development of the entire person and of all people,” Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi told a Boston gathering of Jesuit educators.

Education must “look to the good of everyone and not just of the privileged, to exchange know-how and not concentrate it for the benefit of the few and the disadvantage of the many, who remain poorer not only in material goods but also in knowledge,” he said.

“In a world in which ‘knowledge is power,’ we must remember the importance of ‘knowing with’ and of ‘knowing for,’” said the priest, who is the Vatican’s spokesman.
