Importance Of Education

Importance Of Education 

It will be so disastrous of me as a writer not to write about education. Welcome to Newslineng as we take you further on the importance of education.

I will not consider myself a good blogger or even a responsible adult if I were to tell you that education is not important. It means I am misleading you.

Education is so underrated and very critical. Indeed, the more I see people argue against the importance of education, the more they prove me right. They are actually showing how important education is when out of lack of education, they deny the importance of education.

I doubt if there is any level of stupidity and ignorance higher than denying the importance of education. In fact, everybody is educated to some extent. Because education is the process of learning and I believe everyone has learnt some things.

Pardon me to disagree with the theory that learning negative things is not education. Education is simply to learn or unlearn. Both positive and negative knowledge are acquired through education. In fact, all the armed forces all over the world were properly educated on how to kill.

There’s no comparison to when one is knowledgeable and when one is not, the difference is always clear, the reasoning, the reactions to issues and the contributions towards things will always stand out.

Going to university alone does not make one knowledgeable cos some just pass through the school without the school passing through them, they were just there to obtain certificate and get the title “graduate”

Before we forge ahead, let’s get to know what education is all about.

What Is Education: Education can be said to be a process of imparting or acquiring knowledge, judgement, facts, skills and ideas formally or informally.

You can get educated anywhere you find yourself be it at home, workplace, church, social gatherings etc. But the best form of education is said to be the ones gotten from schools that’s because it comes with extra advantages.

A country which lacks education is said to be a country without future. It no news but facts that educated countries are more enlightened and prosperous that non educated countries.

Have you asked yourself why a poor parents strives very hard and can go any length to send their kids to school ? Mothers sell off their wrappers and fathers sells their lands just to afford their children’s tuition fees, do you know why ?? That’s because education eradicates poverty and hunger.

The importance of education can never be overemphasised. There are many reason why education I so important. Basically, most of our career goals are tied to the level of education we gain and that also determines our future well-being.

Let’s take a look on some importance of education.

Communication skills :  If a child is born and hidden from the world, trust me, he or she would definitely act different from the rest when set free. Education helps better our communication abilities with one another. The way we speak, listen, read and write are all the products of education.

When it comes to problem solving or decision making, the counsel of an educated person is needed because they bring creative ideas to the table. An educated person interacts with people in a very logical way.

Job Opportunities:  Being educated helps one meet basic job qualifications. The possibility ratio of an educated person to secure a job over an eneducated person is 99 to 1. Every firm, company and organisations needs an educated person to help move the organisation forward.
