Education and its Importance
Education is an important medium for acquiring essential knowledge and skills. Education is not only confined to the books that you read at educational institutes, but it is also much more than that; education comprises of everything that you do in life and it covers all the aspects. It is an effort of the older generation to transfer their life wisdom to their offspring. If you are an educated person you will have manners and your behavior determines your level of education; it is reflected in how you treat others around you. It gives us the opportunity to become a productive member of a civilized society by acquiring all the necessary skills. Main purpose of education is to make you humble and dignified.
People learn basic norms, rules, regulations, and values of society through education. There are different functions that are performed by education, as Bertrand Russell remarks, “Education has, broadly, two main objects first to impart certain skills, from reading and writing upwards; and secondly make people fit to be citizens. But the second is conceived very differently under different kind of systems.” An illiterate person can find it very difficult to cope with some aspects of life. Education gives you exposure to life and teaches you how to be a sensible and responsible citizen of the country. It helps us develop a disciplined life and provides us with better-earning opportunities. It completely changes our mind and personality and helps us to attain positive attitudes.
Moreover, another crucial aspect is about the kind of education that is being given at schools. It is the premise of progress, in every family and in every society. It leads us to the right path and gives us a chance to have a wonderful life. These days education is one of the biggest businesses in the world, schools are paying more focus on the amount of money that they can make instead of paying attention to the quality of education that they are providing. Our education is really worth an investment. Only if you believe and work hard you can achieve anything.
School education plays a great role in everyone’s life. Due to lack of resources, we have two kinds of institutes one that is fully equipped which would be called an A grade school and the other which lack resources due to financial problems which are considered as B grade schools. All the divisions of education have their own importance and benefits. These divisions within the schooling system create a sense of insecurity among the students and they are not able to get the kind of education that is the right of every student. Primary education prepares the base which helps throughout life, secondary education prepares the path for further study and higher secondary education prepares the ultimate path of the future and whole life. These distinctions need to be removed for a better quality of education.
Another issue that needs to be highlighted is the role of an educator, the teacher who is the main source of information for the pupils. Our good or bad education decides which type of person we would in the future. A teacher can instill in the minds of students what no one else can do; she can place the love of knowledge and education in the hearts of her pupils so that they can learn in a better way. Each and every kid has their own dream of doing something different in life. A teacher is a person who influences her students the most, they look up to her. In our society, the higher officials, doctors, engineers are respected by all. They are respected for their education. His success in life depends on how much education he/she gets in his career.
With a proper system of education and responsible attitude of teachers, education can serve its purpose and enlighten the minds of many people. According to Nelson Mandela Education is the most powerful weapon which can be used to change the world. Today, everyone wants to fulfill their wish and become successful. It is only education that enables one to reach one’s goals.
