So far there have been discovered no limits to man's capacity to learn. From earliest times, however, men in positions of power or influence have suggested that the learning capacity of certain individuals or groups is severely limited and that they should not be expected to profit greatly, if at all, from education. These "ineducable" individuals have usually been members of minority or disadvantaged groups. It is a fact that the “failure to learn” didn’t occur due to incapacity but further more due to the lack of opportunity. BSS’s mission is to enhance social equality and bring the education to the doorsteps of everyone who wants to learn and create flexibility for lifelong learning.
