We know you hate the global South
Not at all, but I'm a realist about the feasibility of taking people from countries mired in extreme poverty and inequality (and corruption can't get the first two without the third) and placing them in far better run societies and expecting them to be able to be economic contributors....
Education, education, education.
Needs to happen when they're kids and not when they're in their 20s and have just jumped the fence in Melilla.... and about to end up as manteros* or worse because... what else can they realistically do?
Childhood education is a proxy for a lot of the life skills (separate from job skills) that people need in order to find and keep jobs.
I would love for the poorer parts of the world to get their act together and education is key but education for the sake of education (esp secular ) is not an important value for many/most of the people in the world and that's a driver of continued povery/inequality/corruption...
A vicious circle that neither of us can change by hoping for the best.
