James Keyes is a passionate advocate for the transformative power of education. His book, “Education is Freedom,” explores how education can liberate individuals and societies from ignorance, inequality, and oppression. With a focus on the importance of education for all, Keyes provides a roadmap to understanding the “why,” “what,” and “how” of learning. He emphasizes the role of education in preserving democracy and empowering individuals to take control of their lives.

In today’s polarized society, where freedom of speech is challenged, Keyes highlights the critical need for an informed electorate. He underscores that an educated populace is the foundation of democracy, as it enables individuals to discern truth from fiction and make informed decisions.

Keyes believes that education is the key to personal freedom and success. He encourages individuals to embrace a learning mentality, emphasizing that knowledge is something no one can take away. Education empowers individuals to explore the world, be self-reliant, and overcome life’s challenges.

His book has received endorsements from prominent figures, including former President and First Lady of Mexico, Vicente Quesada and Martha Fox; Apollo 11 astronaut Dr. Buzz Aldrin; leadership expert John Maxwell; former Secretary of the Air Force, Barbara Barrett; former Chairman & CEO of Pepsico, Indra Nooyi; and many others.

“Education is Freedom” is a self-help guide for humanity, offering inspiration and insights into the lifelong journey of learning and its potential to transform lives and society. James Keyes believes that education is the key to unlocking unlimited opportunities and a brighter future for all. The club has bought 150 copies of Mr. Keyes’ book and will sign them at the meeting.
