Importance of Education

Value of education

Whats is the importance of  Education for your life and for society? Education is not  about collecting degrees. Education creates a better civilization. Education is what separates  humans from animals. Education makes us confident, make us independent. Education spreads awareness in society about how we can be a good social being and removes blanket of ignorance and helps people in knowing them their fundamental rights . Education helps in imparting moral values which is missing in our youth and needs to be addressed carefully for creating a good society.

Nelson Mandela knew the importance of education and thus in his own words,

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

If education is so important, why is education on back-foot in so many countries. Stats shows that education is only tool which can take a country on the path of progress, any country which focuses on education has progressed and all uneducated country is struggling.  Be it India or Pakistan.. lack of education is hurting not even individually but also on country levels.  In India, I have seen that the Indian government intentionally wants education system to be on back foot. A very low percentage of annual budget is allocated for improving education system and even if  budget is allocated it is never ensured that it gets implemented nicely. I always wondered why? May be George Washington Carver had an answer, he said :

Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom.

And obviously Indian government does not want the citizens to unlock the doors of freedom.

Even though education is provided in India, i feel there is huge lack of quality and specialized education. In construction of mechanical industry we see that number of workers are employed but nobody has ever been provided health and safety training , where as if we talk about the same thing in UK, there are many institution like Sheilds which provides health and safety training and its astonishing to know that huge number of workers and companies takes their services. Where as in India, nobody is bothered about health and safety trainings.

Its most important that quality of education in India is improved for making a better and independent society. That also helps in removing the unemployment from the country. Although there are many training institutes like ITI which provides vocational trainings for mechanics and low educated skilled workers which can open shops mobile/laptop repairs, there was always a need for quality institutes who can help in reducing unemployment of tech and MBA graduates. Outshine Labs is one such institute that has been started the initiative to provide quality education and training in India free of cost.

We accept that quality of education in India is poor but even if the education quality is better in countries like Australia, USA, UK , there is a general tendency in their students that they want to get their assignments done through some third party by paying a very nominal charge to them. Services like Pay4paper, help them in completing their assignments and paper work  without the need of any actual hard work.

Whats the solution of all this? The solution lies in self discipline. Its the duty of government to implement the steps nicely for the improvement of education in country and its the duty of students to work seriously for the education and teachings they have been provided. They will have to be honest to themselves as far as education and moral values are concerned.

    hi Ashish Jha, I agree that education is not about collecting degrees. But a lot of things that led to the degrees will lead to education. I am an accountant, and while I have changed career several months ago the things I have learned for this profession were crucial.

    With all the information that is now available to us by a click of a button.(if you have access to the internet), you can learn a lot of things that you might not learn in college.

    As for why a in a lot of countries education is on back foot, I think that some government/employees do not stress enough how important it is to keep educating yourself.

    Another thing i think is crucial is that people are getting lazy, and do not educate themselves with the right information. For example a lot of people in the Netherlands are complaining that live is getting more expensive, but those people will rather watch some reality show, instead of reading a book on personal finance, or how to save money.

    As you also mentioned that India accepts that the quality is poor. However I have noticed that a lot of fortune 500 companies have outsourced work to India. My assumption would be that the quality of India should be of decent standards, otherwise those companies would never outsourced the work.

    I have never been to India, but someday hope to visit it.

    Kind regards,

    Yes, Education system should be good in every country. If people in every country are well educated then country will progress in every field. Education also helps in removing unemployment. Important steps should be taken in every country to raise the standards of education system.

  • Education is most important than everything. Everyone should know what is wrong, what is right, this analysis will come with education only. You said education is powerful weapon thats 100% right. We can do anything with 100% education. If a county having more graduates means it is near to development. So every government should give first preference to education.

    In my opinion there should be uniform pattern in each and every university then only all students get same chances.

  • Hi Ashish

    I believe education is something or I should say education is everything and one can only attain it through our will. See nobody can force you to study or to believe what they say. There is a great saying “ The books are person’s best friend.” But only books can not give us what our life want from us. We have to take a step to implement on our life. An educated person knows what is right and what is wrong. It improves our life standard , personality and mindset. The way you explained everything here is so amazing. Keep this awesome sharing. Best Wishes…
