Nelson Mandela told Oprah why he values education so much:

"No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated. Any nation that is progressive is led by people who have had the privilege of studying. I knew we could improve our lives even in jail. We could come out as different men, and we could come out with two degrees. Educating ourselves was a way to give ourselves the most powerful weapon for freedom. . . . The more informed you are, the less arrogant and aggressive you are."
