Den Zugang zu Bildung verstehen die Menschen nicht nur hierzulande als ihr gutes Recht. Bildung und Ausbildung sind geradezu selbstverständlich, zumal sie beinahe kostenlos wahrgenommen werden.
Wer sich jedoch einmal selbst fragt, wo er stünde, hätte er nicht all die Möglichkeiten dieses Bildungssystems gehabt, versteht schnell, wie wichtig und essentiell Bildung für den persönlichen Werdegang, die eigene berufliche Situation und die Teilnahme am gesellschaftlichen Leben ist.

LAT: „Iranian authorities imposed a harsh, eight-year sentence on two Americans arrested along the border with Iraq in 2009, state television cited an unnamed judicial source as saying Saturday, in a stunning verdict that could further strain relations between Washington and Tehran. Shane Bauer and Joshua Fattal, who have already been held in Tehran’s infamous Evin Prison for two years, have 20 days to appeal their convictions on charges of illegal entry into Iranian territory and espionage. Their lawyer, Masoud Shafii, said he had not been officially informed of the sentence and vowed to take the case to the appeals court, arguing that the prosecutors had failed to show any proof of espionage and that the hikers strayed into Iran inadvertently. ‚In the past two years I have not seen any evidence to prove my clients are spies,‘ he said. ‚It is as if anyone carrying a toothbrush in his satchel is a spy.‘ Shafii and the men’s supporters had hoped they would be freed as a gesture of goodwill during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. President Obama and other U.S. officials have repeatedly called for their release. ‚Shane and Josh have been imprisoned too long, and it is time to reunite them with their families,‘ State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement.“ http://t.uani.com/pR3cQb
