It is a complicated question “Importance of education” when we think of it but we all know that education is important for all of us.
The first thought that strikes me about the importance of education is knowledge gain. Education gives us knowledge of everything around us and how we can use that knowledge for the betterment of ourselves and others. Education develops a new perspective of looking at life. It helps us in building opinions and points of view on things in life.
People generally debate over this subject’s importance of education and whether education is the only thing which gives us knowledge. Some say education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. They are right! but then again, information cannot be converted into knowledge without education.
We can implement information to something useful only if we have knowledge of how to do it and that knowledge comes from education. For example, when a child starts gaining education he or she not just learn about textbook lessons but also learns about manners, good habits, bad habits, respect, and much more.
Education makes us capable of interpreting things, among other things. It is not just about lessons in textbooks but also about lessons in life.
Education helps in removing poverty, as when people will be educated they will be able to apply their knowledge to do some work and earn money. Education makes people capable of doing something. Either they can do a job or they can work for themselves. There are many people who start work of their own after completing their education. They are able to do it because they have gained knowledge that can be now implement to get earnings.
If a person starts any work of his own he creates employment not only for himself but for others as well. So education also helps in fighting unemployment
If one is educated one has knowledge of good or bad, right or wrong which is important for a good life. Education makes you learn about social etiquette, which is again important for living a good quality of life.
There are still some places where education is not considered important. A larger section of society is still deprived of education because they don’t consider education important. People can understand the importance of education only when they will see educated people around them. So its important that awareness about the importance of education should be created.
Education also helps in making people aware of discrimination, untouchability, child labor, child marriage, etc. All these practices were common a lot in earlier days. But now these practices are getting eradicated because of education only. Education has made people understand about the bad effects of these practices. So more people will be educated more our society will be away from such evil practices.
It is important to provide education for all without leaving any child behind and try changing the world for good.
In earlier days there were no schools or colleges in villages but now as people are getting educated schools and colleges are opening in villages also. This has given the opportunity to village people to gain knowledge and brighten their future. Even many of us are aware that earlier in some villages or regions or communities girls were not allowed to take education. Because in such regions or communities there was a belief that girls are meant to do household works and there is no need to educate girls. But because of education, this belief was changed and now most of the girls are educated.
Education is the most important element in the evolution of the nation. Some people would think that money is an important factor but without education, there will be no money.
Learning is a major factor that is related to education. If you learn more new things, you will be more and more educated.
Hence, to conclude we can say education is the basic need for every individual and every nation. What we need to do is to create awareness in people’s mind to achieve higher goals of making our country a developed country from a developing one.
