The 15-year-old education crusader is back where she belongs—in school. Malala Yousafzai returned to school today for the first time since being shot on a school bus last October. She attended Birmingham’s Edgbaston High School for Girls, and called the day “the most important day” of her life. She said, “I think it is the happiest moment that I’m going back to school, this is what I dreamed, that all children should be able to go to school because it is their basic right.” It’s a proud moment, writes former U.K. prime minister Gordon Brown, but millions of girls like her are still denied an education.
