Can education change values?

    I'd recently attended a conference where people were discussing the importance of the right economic strategies and systems with additional support and infrastructure from teachers and communities in order to provide sound education systems. Those of you who grew up in some of the poorer areas around the world might understand that providing this alone doesn't solve the issue of values.

    With some of these schools still experiencing violence, poor attendance, low pass rates it really does make one wonder where governments can be putting some of their money. Can governments implement programs to educate entire communities and help build sound value systems in families to help promote education from the ground up?
