The benefits of education

Portugal, May 11, 1948

A farmer who can read, write and count, knows the techniques for cultivating and treating animals better; he sells, rents, buys, trades, lends, mortgages and organizes his business with more success and more profit. If he is a family man, he must not leave his job and waste time and money to go to the city to consult the lawyer, the clerk, the employee, to write a simple ticket, send a check, sign a document or write to his absent daughter who is at service, or to his son who is in the army, or entrust his business to strangers.
