    A lesson to be learned.

    Dear teachers,
    Could you explain to be what does it mean that something is 'a lesson to be learned'?
    Can I say that somebody's biography is a threat and source of knowledge for others in that way?

    Thank you in advance:)

    It normally means that we should change or improve the way we do something because we have seen something very negative occur through our negligence, disorganisation, etc.
