“Education is the way out of poverty.” | Elon Musk News

Elon Musk shared some thoughts about poverty alleviation on Twitter late Thursday. He is often criticized for his billionaire status by many critics, especially those who try to mislead vulnerable populations into thinking that Elon Musk is responsible for their suffering.

“Education,” said Elon Musk, “is the way out of poverty and access to the Internet enables education.” Elon Musk said last night in response to the Tesla owners of Silicon Valley Club, who pointed out that by adding schools to Amazon, Starlink is giving people access to education.

By providing Starlink Internet to schools in the Amazon region, SpaceX is helping area communities gain access to essential education that will lift people out of poverty. SpaceX is also in talks with officials in the Republic of Zambia about Starlink services in the country.

This is not the first time that Elon Musk has touted education as an important solution to solving poverty. In my own interview Poverty and the Musk Foundation were the topics of our interview with Elon Musk in July, and I asked Elon what achievements his foundation made that he was most proud of.

He was quick to tell me that he doesn’t think the foundation has done much. However, an education XPRIZE that focused on improving literacy, which he funded, was something he felt did some good.

“I think it was cool and I think it did some good. To the extent that one can improve literacy then you are essentially improving everything in any society because they are now learning the skill. can,” he told me.

“If you can’t read, basically, it’s hard to get someone out of poverty, maybe if they can’t read.”

As far as solving poverty is concerned, Elon stressed that literacy and access to the Internet are important. He said we need to think beyond the United States because there are billions of people without internet connectivity or who have very little bandwidth.

“For many parts of the world, this is the case – billions of people,” Elon said.
