“I am thinking now”

When you're an educator, it's easy to get bogged down in details. Often petty details. And it's easy to forget the big picture.

In this TED talk, Patrick Awuah talks about how universities create the educated people that can drive nations to succeed. And how the lack of such people can cause national crises.

He calls this leadership, but I'm suspicious of that word.
